Concert To Be Given

George Bizet's "Carmen." 

This well-known opera takes 
place in Spain at the beginning

men, a tempestuous gypsy, after 
having shown an interest in and 
after having sufficiently im- 
pressed the young corporal Don 
Jose, provokes a fight and 
is put into prison under the guard 
of Don Jose. Carmen, by singing 
"Seguidilla," induces Jose to re- 
lease her. This brings about his

After serving his prison term, 

Jose meets Carmen at a tavern 

which is a hangout for smugglers. 

While he is there Zuniga, his

Dear Editor: 

We Scots believe in efficiency with frugality! 

In olden days when we fought the English, our pipers 
were allowed five minutes to blow their pipes as shrilly as 
they possibly could. That was sufficient to demoralize the 
enemy, after which the fighting men went ahead to defeat 
their enemies without further effort on the part of the mu- 

Could our cheerleaders consider whether this strategy 
might prove effectively in our ball games? 

Sincerely yours,

commanding officer, orders him 
back to camp. A fight ensues and 
Jose escapes with Carmen and 
her smuggler friends. Now that 
Carmen has Jose at the camp 
with her. she tires of him and 
turns her attention to Escimillo, 
a bullfighter of Granados. Jose, 
after having received word of his 
mother's impending death, leaves 
the camp with the jealousy-pro- 
voked threat that he will return. 
Carmen later recognizes Jose 
in a crowd and determines to 
have a talk with him. Jose pleads 
with her to go away with him. 
She refuses. As the curtain falls, 
Jose stabs her and falls beside 
her body.

The Pre-Med Club is now in the process of completing plans for 
;s annual marriage clinic which will be held in the early spring, 
'he club is planning a four — or possibly a five-day clinic consisting 
f a hour's discussion each evening. The leaders of the discussion 
/ill include a minister, a medical doctor, an economist, a psycholo- 
ist, and possibly a lawyer. Each speaker will speak about marriage 
i relation to his particular field of work. 

Jim Frasure, chairman of the marriage clinic committee, is 
uoted to have said, "This year's clinic should be one of the best 
ie club has sponsored, and each student will benefit by attending 
aese sessions."

Last fall the Ministerial Association took as a project Patton's 
hapel. At that time, the church had lost two of the three Milhgan 
udents serving it tnrough withdrawal from college and their mov- 
ig to another community. 1'hc remaining member of that group 
une to us with a request for help and the suggestion that we serve 
lat church as an Association project. Chuck Mills was selected to 
linister in the morning services and Harold "Choppy' Kast in the 
/ening services. Rick Bussian, Gordon McHaffey, and Lynn Berry 
re the directors of the youth groups. We now point with happiness 
i the stability of that congregation and with pride in Jesus Christ 
• the growth of that congregation. 

We of the Ministerial Association want to publicly thank these 
en for their work and to join with them in the hope that the cause 
j: our Lord will grow and flourish in that church. We would invoke 
le prayers of the whole Milligan Family toward the success of the 
ork there through our Lord and Saviour. There is also news of 
rons in the fire." On bulletin boards hither and yon you have un- 
jubtedly noticed the posted meetings of the Christian Youth Work- 
's Seminar (CYWS). The news? The CYWS (Teeter Robinson, 
resident) has been having considerable trouble in scheduling non- 
inflicting meetings due to the fact that it is not an "official" club. 
Something about the lack of a constitution). In order to allow for 
le proper school calendar scheduling of their meetings which would 
•ing an end to conflicts, we of the Ministerial Association and we 
[' the CYWS are looking forward to the union of the CYWS as a 
ib-unit of the Ministerial Association. However, do not let the term 
lb-unit fool you. The CYWS may prove to be a very important part 
L' the Association in more ways than expected. Who knows! The 
ct that there will be a female representation of that group may 
ad to a stirring new interest among our ministering faculty mem- 
hrs, who are unofficial sponsors of the Association, and a new ex- 
I tberance among our not-so-regular members. Dues could be col- 
jcted! Perhaps, even raised! 

The Preaching Clinic was not held for the month of January,

On Tuesday, January 5, the Ministerial Association held its first 
■ eeting in the new year. After a short business meeting. Brother 
luy Mayfield spoke on "European Missions." Included in his talk 
fere reports of the work there, the need for more missionaries in 
at area, and the reception of the people of Europe to the Word of 
od in their native tongue rather than Latin. Brother Mayfield also 
i entioned the new mission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with which

Friday. February 12, 1960 

Milligan Buffs Hold — Record 
Enter V.S.A.C Tourney Wednesday 


Coach Walker's five completely dominated the game over the 
College of Charleston. The smaller team of the visitors could not 
keep up with the shooting or rebounding of the taller hosts. 

Milligan's game was won on the boards by outrebounding the 
visitors by 66 to 31. Leading the rebounders was Charlie Tester. 

Four men were in double figures for the locals. Leading the 
score was Harrell with 24, followed by Taylor with 22, Tester 16, 
and Deyton 10. 


Union cashed in on a couple of good breaks to break the 66-66 
tie with less than two minutes left. 

Milligan held a 44-36 advantage at half-time. As the score in- 
dicates, the game was a see-saw affair the whole way. The biggest 
lead was the half-time score. 

The locals hit a better percent from the field and out-rebounded 
their bigger opponents. 

Leading the scoring for the Buffs were Black with 22, Harrell 
13, and Taylor 12. 


The local five hit an unbelievable cold streak in the second half. 
With a good first half and a nifty nine-point lead at the half break, 
it. all hit at once. Scoring a good 42 points the Buffs were held to a 
mere 17 points in the second half. Tlie overall field percentage was 
a cold 32.8%. 

Topping the scorers for the locals were Black, Taylor, and Tes- 


Playing one of the best games of the season the Buffs downed 
the Railsplitters from L.M.U. with a well balanced scoring attack. 
The Buffs hit a very good 45.3% from the field, which is their top 
for the season. 

Leading the attack was Charlie Tester with 22 points. Charlie 
also pulled off 20 rebounds from the taller opponents. 

A lot of hustle was shown in this team victory from four men 
who scored in doubles; Tester 22, Black 16, Taylor 15, and Williams 
15. A lot of good defense was displayed by the Buffs, who held the 
opponents to 58 points. 


For the second time this season Milligan swept past their rivals 
from Emory, Virginia. 1"he Buffs were in complete control of the 
game the whole way, leading as much as 10 points in the first half. 
Every man on the squad saw action in the game, as seven hit the 
scoring column. 

A very good point again is the four men in double figures. Lead- 
ing the attack was Lew Taylor with 21; following closely behind 
him were Tester 19, Black 14, and Harrell 12. The locals hit the 
nets at a 40% pace. 

Rebounding was an important factor in the victory as the local 
five outrebounded their guests 51 to 38. Leading in this department 
was Charlie Tester with 16. 

This victory put the Buffs one game over the 500 mark, with 
a fair chance to finish that way. 


Coach Walker's quintet chopped the King five with a well- 
balance scoring attack. Four of the starters hit in double figures 
as the team hit 41.7 per cent from the field. 

Terry Black took high scoring honors and paced the Buffaloes 
with 23 points, followed bv Tester with 16, Williams with 12. and 
Taylor with 11. 

The score being tied only once, 2-2, was never close after this. 
King pulled within 4 points as the half ended, but after a short rest 
the local five moved out front to stay. 

Leading the rebounding for the Buffs was Ed Green with 13, 
and Williams with 10. The locals outrebounded King 42-33. 


Coach Walker's clan lost by ten points to the King roundballers 
with a score of 70-60. This brought an even 9-9 record for the Buffs. 

The half-time score was 37-37, but it proved hard to keep up 
with the host team during the second half. 

Terry Black and Ed Green took scoring honors with 13 each. 
Lew Taylor was close behind with 12. Lewis had 17 for King. 


The Milligan "Buffettes" defeated Sullins College in the first 
extramural contest here at Cheek Gymnasium on Thursday, Feb- 
ruary 4, by a score of 62-43. Joanne Swinford led the Milligan at- 
tack by scoring an amazing 31 points. Following her in scoring were 
Nancy Sahli with 15, Ruth Hammack with 3, Hope Deyton with 6, 
and Gail Jean with 2. For Sullins, Mel Leach was high with 21 points 
with Stephany Hampton close behind with 13. The only other scor- 
ers were Barbara Bookhart with 3 and Louise Hooper with 1. 

Milligan stayed in front of Sullins the entire game, although 
they held a slim margin of 12-10 at the end of the first quarter, 
and 26-21 at the half. After three quarters of play the score was 
38-30, and in the fourth quarter the "Buffettes" pulled away to win 
the game by a score of 62-43. 

Milligan travels to Bristol tonight, February 12, for a return 
match with the Sullins team.

Oratorio Given 
By Choir 

On May Day, May 7, 8:00 p.m. 
the Concert Choir presented the 
oratorio "Elijah" by Felix Men- 
delssohn. Adding to the festivi- 
ties of the day, the oratorio em- 
ployed the talents of Pat Mat- 
thews and Susan Hope as ac- 
companists, Norma Faye Barker 
as soprano soloist, Judy Pease as 
alto soloist, J. D. Smith as tenor

vocalists comprised of a quartet. 
They were: Patty Meehan, so- 
prano; Joanne Hines, alto; Bob 
Hale, tenor; John Smucker, bass. 

The two main characters were: 
Elijah, done by Marshall Hayden, 
and Ahab, done by Terry Black. 

The story is briefly this: On 
Mount Carmel, Elijah, the one 
irue remaining prophet of God. 
:hallenges the prophets of Baal. 
Telling the prophets of Baal to 
summon their god to devour with 
ilame the sacrifice to him, Elijah 
aunts them when thev cannot 
io so. He then summons Jehovah 
ind the sacrifice is promptly con- 
;umed. Upon their witnessing of 
his miracle, many of the people 
■eturn to the worship of the one 
> rue god, and the wicked prop- 
I lets of Baal are destroyed.

Buffalo"" Dedicated To Dean Oakes 

by Millie Turner. Editor 

The rafters of the old chapel rang with applause. The senior 
Class of 1960 had presented their edition of the Buffalo to Dean 
Guy Oakes. The presentation was made with great pride and es- 
teem because our "Happy Dean" has made our years at Milligan 
just a little more memorable! 

Accept, Dean Oakes, our love and gratitude through this token 
of thanks.

Vera Caspary. The play tells the 
story of a detective who, investi- 
gating the death of the mysteri- 
ous Laura Hunt, falls in love

been murdered; while the mur- 
derer goes unknown. 

The cast is: Laura Hunt, Mary 
Johnson; Mark McPherson, Ron 
McSwain; Danny Dorgan, Roger 
Bennett; Waldo Lydecker, Jim

in selecting the cast as well as 
in many other ways. 

Turner And Crites 
Reign Over May 

Milligan College honored Miss 
Millie Turner and Mr. Eric Crites 
as the reigning queen and king 
of the 1960 May Day Festival. 
The court consisted of Jeyce Har- 
ris, Les Rengstorff, Linda Elliot 
and Larry Forrest as senior court; 
Jaynell Savior, Jim Lura, Judy 
Pease and Ray Rensi as junior 
court; Norma Faye Barker and

Jim Stidham and Barbara Ten- 
ney, crowned Millie and Eric to 
reign over all the activity of the 
day. The May Court entertained 
the royal pair with an enlighten- 
ing dance around the Maypole, 
"Spanish Circle." 

Following the coronation a his- 
torical re-enactment of the dis- 
covery of Central Mexico by 
Pedro de Alvarado, in honor of 
the queen and king. 

The first of three scenes took 
place in the court of Charles V of 
Spain in the year 1523. The May 
Court formed the court of 
Charles. Alvarado receives his 
commission to find lands in the 
name of Spain. 

Quiche-land was the setting of 
Scene Two. Alvarado and his 
crew came to this land and find 
riches. The white man conquers 
the weaker race. 

Festivities began in Scene 
Three as Alvarado returns home. 
Special numbers by the folk 
rhythm class, Continentals and 
Volunteers were featured. The 
finale furnished by the entire 
cast was crowned by the arrival 
of the Conquistadors and Indians 
to the Court, bearing gifts. 

A serenade and bull-fight was 
presented as between-scene acts. 
Acting as flower vendor, Dr. 
Ward distributed flowers 
throughout the entire program. 
Special guests were seated in the 
sidewalk cafe on the porch of

Spring And Studies 

Since spring has hit 'ole M.C.'s campus, the student body has 
come out of hiding. More students are spending afternoons taking 
walks or watching the spring sports. This poses a problem: "What 
shall we do about our studies?" 

Even though spring fever has hit us full force we must not 
slack up on studies, especially since finals are only ten days away. 

Budgeting time to allow both fun and studies becomes neces- 
sary. Most sporting events don't begin until 2:00 p.m., so there is 
time after lunch for those who don't have classes to study. Also, 
walks can be postponed till after supper, leaving afternoons free. 
Free morning periods should be taken full advantage of, and walks 
can often lead you to quiet places to study. 

Spring activities can also supplement studies. Material for 
Botany classes and English themes is plentiful. Put it to use. 

While we are "taking in" this wonderful spring, why not take 
in its cheeriness too, and wipe the frowns off our faces. Make spring 
show in your face-smile! 

Jim Lura Elected Pres. 

(Continued From Page One) 
Starnes and Sheila Ottinger, for 
their respective offices,

platform is the reinstatement of 
the Tri-Council.

campaign manager, and Terry 
Black managed Dick True's cam- 

The speeches are over, the bal-

student government is just be- 

An Oregon State College pro- 
fessor sends along the most cheer- 
ful thought of the day: Good 
spellers are made, not born. He 
says that with hard work most 
people can become good spellers. 

To young people let us say that 
consistently correct spelling adds 
a notch of stature. It is simple 
enough to be accurate. In writing 
Ihemes and letters make the dic- 
tionary a bosom pal. By checking 
every word (don't let an erron- 
' eous assumption trip you) you 
can be certain to bat a thousand. 

For newspapermen spelling is 
an occupational hazard. It catches 
most of them, sooner or later. 
They're sensitive to the problem. 
Their worry ought to be shared 
by every field because accurate 
spelling pays off in many ways. 

We add a plea: Keep your spell- 
ing standards high, even in notes 
to relatives or friends. As your 
look-it-up habit continues, your 
confidence will grow and so will 
your vocabulary. You'll win add- 
ed respect from friends and col-

The Christian Service Club has been featuring a variety 
of programs. Recently, a panel of students presented a dis- 
cussion on Christianity in different professions, each dealing 
with his own chosen field. Those participating were: Jim 
Frasure, medicine Linda Elliot, social work; Millie Turner, 
teaching; and Don Holben, science and the ministry. 

An added attraction at the meetings is the accompani- 
ment for group singing provided by Terry Black and Joanne 
Swinford on their trumpets. 

On March 7 Dr. Crowder spoke to the group on the neces- 
sity of humility for the Christian teacher and leader. 

Susan Hope presided over a singspiration for the March 
14 meeting. 

Gospel teams are being kept busy this semester. One 
team went to Emory and Henry College for an exchange pro- 
gram. Dave Steucher served as emcee and Ray Rensi pre- 
sented the message. The others on the team were: Joanne 
Hines, song leader; Pat Picklesimer, scripture reading; and 
Paul Houston, soloist. 

The Christianaires quartet traveled to Lock Haven, 
Pennsylvania, for Sunday services. Members of the group are 
3enji Young, Carl Main, Terry Black, and Ed Green. 

Meetings will be held outdoors as soon as the weather

Sophomores Decide On Major 
Project To Remodel Room In Sub 

The sophomore class has decided on their major pro- 
ject. This project will consist of remodeling one room in the 
basement of the Sub. This room will be used only for special 
events or on specific occasions. 

The class voted in favor of two money-making projects. 
The first was to have a late -run movie shown in the audi- 
torium twice a month. Admission will be charged and re- 
freshments may be bought there. The other was the selling 
of contemporary cards. Sales began on Saturday, April 9. 

Jim Frasure and Pat Combs were chosen as co-chairmen 
of Twirp Week for next year, and plans are now being made 
for the week. 


Before vacation, the Association met in the swimming 
pool for a class on practical Baptism with Dr. Lambert pre- 
siding and instructing. We noted that this was the best at- 
tended meeting this year. 

The nominating committee met Thursday evening. We 
were struck by the fact that we only had twelve regular at- 
tending, eligible members to nominate for the office of presi- 



On March 15 Mrs. Orvel Crowder was the guest speaker 
t the meeting of the Service Seekers. She gave an interest- 
ig talk on music in the church. 

The next meeting was a discussion on methods of teach - 
ng youth, which was led by a few members of the Christian 
[ducation class. This meeting was April 19 at 7:00 p.m. 



The Missionary Fellowship met Friday evening, March 
1, and discussed the recent Missionary Conference which 
■as held March 3 and 4. Although plans had to be changed 
uring the conference because of detrimental weather, the 
.ub feels that this was a help and inspiration to Milligan. 
pinions from the students or faculty at Milligan on this 
iiatter will be appreciated. 

On April 8 the Missionary Fellowship met again. The 
ub voted unanimously to look into the possibility of having 
lother Missionary Conference next year, the Lord willing. 

Presently the Missionary Fellowship is making plans to 
•pe a Brazilian Survey for the Christian Missionary Fel- 
wship. They plan to send this survey to various Bible Col- 
Iges. It concerns the present mission work being done in 
razil and future possibilities of mission work there. 

Our meetings are planned for the second and fourth Fri- 
iiy nights of each month during the school term. We invite 
■>u to help us try to spread the gospel of the living Christ. 

With the beginning of spring sports, the Varsity Voices 
are working to support the baseball, tennis, and track teams 
and appointed to publicity are the following: baseball, Bonnie 
Allee; tennis, Ruth Hammack and Earlene Orman; and track, 
Anita Hiner. 

The Varsity Voices also sponsored the annual All-Sports 
Day at which the trophy was awarded to the All Sports King 
Lowell Williams. This athlete must have lettered in two or 
more varsity sports and he was chosen by the student body 
on the basis of his athletic ability and sportsmanship. 

Stationery will be sold again during the next few weeks 
by Bonnie Allee, Anita Hiner, Janet Spurgeon and Beverly 
Weller. Summer addresses can be monogrammed on the sta- 
tionery if the buyer wishes. 

The Varsity Voices would like to urge the whole student 
body to back the teams and boost them through a winning 



April 7, 1960, the Commerce Club made a tour of the 
Hamilton National Bank of Johnson City. In addition to the 
tour they were shown the Currency Exhibit of the Federal 
Reserve Bank of Atlanta. The exhibit contained money 
used in the United States from the beginning of the country 
to the present day. It also included a collection of Confed- 
erate money issued in 1861 by the Confederate Government 
during the War between the States. Some counterfeit money 
that had been printed in the United States was also on dis- 

Those going on the tour were: Mr. Price, Alice Miller.

Senior Plans Made 
For Next Year 

With graduation in the near 
future, Milligan seniors are mak- 
ing final career plans. Although 
Milligan will be sending grad- 
uates into many various careers, 
the field that seems most popu- 
lar with the girls, other than that 
of marriage, is teaching. This 
career has attracted such seniors 
as Laura Nelle Hamilton, and 
Kathy Whitford, who plan to 
teach in Maryland; Elaine Sparks, 
Doris Whaley, and Elsie Cochran, 
who will go home to work. 

The field of the ministry will 
receive several Milligan grads. 
Les Ringstorff, Eric Crites, John 
Brownlee and Edwin Jacobs will 
all enter this field. John Brown- 
lee will preach in Virginia and 
later plans to attend graduate 
school. Edwin Jacobs hopes to 
Dreach and go to graduate school 
in Michigan.

Elizabethton honored Milligan 
April 30. with Milligan Days. A

The young couple had just fin- 
ished going over their monthly 
bills and were down to the last 
two. "Gosh, honey," said the 
man, "we're practically broke. I 
don't know which to pay — the 
electric company or the doctor." 

"Oh, the electric company, of 
course," answered his wife. "Aft- 
er all, the doctor can't shut off 
your blood." 




Signs of Spring are all about us, and one of the most 
prominent signs of the season is the action of the girls' soft- 
ball field in the afternoons and evenings. 

There are five teams competing against each other in 
softball. This activity is under the direction of Intramural 
Council members Joanne Swinford and Beverly Welier. 
These feminine Mickey Mantels,' Eddie Matthews,' Nellie 
Foxs', and Yogi Berras' show their skill at one of America's 
favorite sports almost every afternoon and evening. For 
entertainment at its height, take your place on the sidelines 
as a spectator to these great sports events! 


Thirty -two girls signed up for the single elimination 
tournament in bowling, which is headed by Bonnie Allee, 
Intramural Council member. At the time of publication the 
tournament is still being run off, so the winner is unknown. 
The highest game bowled thus far was by Carolyn Henley, 
who ended up with a score of 118. 


Carter County and the city of 

Elizabethton honored Milligan 
College by establishing April 2y, 
30 and May 1 as "Milligan Col- 
lege Appreciation Days." The 
major activity of those days took 
the form of a parade at Eliza- 
bethton on the soggy Saturaay 

Gayly decorated student cars 
left the college campus at 12:00, 
noisely proceeded to Betsy and 
arrived at the Post Office Build- 
ing forming in the parade with 
several other groups. The parade 
marshall located the cars and 
groups in the following manner. 
First, members of the May Court, 
with their escorts rode with the 
Chief of Police, followed by the 
Elizabethton High School march- 
ing band and color guard. After 
the band, the spasmodic motor- 
cade proceeded, led by four con- 
convertibles carrying President 
Walker, Mrs. Walker, President 
Derthick, other members of the 
May Court and the Founder's 
Daughter Court and the Found- 
er's Daughter. The M. C. float 

Intermintintly the rest of the 
parade consisted of cars with 
Milligan College Board members, 
trustees, faculty, the special "old 
times" denoting Milligan Through 
The Years," followed by the 
special student section of deco- 
rated cars and bicycle. The last 
group was a Carter County school 
band, and "Buff" Walker at the 
helm, assisting Mrs. Walker with 
the driving of their automobile. 

With the onset of the parade 
came the traditional monsoon 
rain, but all proceeded dripping- 
up and down the ten block route 
and climaxed with the cere- 
monies at the Chamber of Com- 
merce building. 

Miss Sandra Eldimire and her 
bike won first honors for the 
most Outstanding parade entry.

SENIORS VIEW THE PAST... JrSr. Steak Fry Sophs Honor 

Sponsor At Picnic 

This has been the year of all years. First of all was the privilege 
if being seated in the senior section for chapel. Fall Convocation 
howed us the dignity of being seniors and reminded us of the fact 
hat in only nine more months we would again march into the audi- 
orium for our final meeting as seniors. The year holds many cher- 
shed memories. Shall we reminisce? . . . 

Thanks to Alice and Janice for instituting the senior debutante 
larties in Sutton. They have been held monthly with such costuming 
hat most people wouldn't believe. The final party will be held at 
Raymond's on May 26. Carry on, juniors. 

"Little Nell" was the major cultural contribution made to the 
;tudent body. "Dignity," hardly seems the proper word for the 
:hapel period in which the seniors advertised for "Little Nell." And 
is for the play, who can ever forget that famous line "Nectar." Or 
vas it the line that followed that everyone will remember. 

January brought the blessing of taking final exams for the last 
imc. January and February also brought THE snow. Everyone was 
ick of the snow except the student teachers. The men of Pardee 
nade their big move in February ... to Webb Hall. It's hardly fair 
o say they looked like eager little boys running back and forth in 
he process of moving. 

The last concert of the choir tour brought tears to the eyes of 
nany senior members. This last month is already crowded with 
nemories. Our many thanks go to the Faculty Club for the de- 
icious dinner and sad program, to the juniors for a wonderful steak- 
'ry with all of its fun. and to the student body for their "Senior 

Yes, the year has flown! And as we attend the Junior-Senior 
arewell tonight, we'll be adding one more memory to our book. 
Ne have two great occasions left, seniors, before we close our book, 
et's make these the climax of our four precious years together. And 
o you underclassmen, let us advise you to lead a rich, full life NOW 
o that you, too, as seniors can look back on memories that are dear 
10th now and forever. For after all, is there a word more beautiful 

Vien's Intramural Highlights 

The Men's Intramural Program ended this year quite success- 
ully with six men receiving their first year award, an orange buf- 
alo. These men were: David Brandon — 1,368 points, Dave Spon- 
eller— 1,365, Randall Ervin— 1,245, Homer Neal— 1,120, Emerson 
barst— 1.005, Tom Barkes— 1,000. 

This year's program has been one of the best at Milligan Col- 
lege according to Intramural Director, Harold Stout. One hundred 
nd twenty-one men participated and received points. The point 
ystem is cumulative and will be in effect for the next two years un- 
iil it can be adjusted for the incoming freshmen. 

The program was highlighted this year with such events as 
Moose" Williams winning the Tennis Tourney over the favored 
ilric Crites. "Moose" also led his football team to the Intramural 
hampionship. He was backed by a number of fine players: John 
/iggins, Garland James, Dick Howe, John A. Williams, Sanford 
iutton, Bill Smith, John Jones, Jim Bowyer, Dan McLain, and Ken 

Winter sports started fast with Badminton and Volley Ball 
litiating the program. Jim Marshall garnered the honors in the 
adminton Tourney, followed by Charlie Fulks and Homer Neal. 
an McLain led his charges to victory in the Volley Ball Tourna- 
ment. His team consisted of: Bob Dudley, John Wiggins, Butch 
imes, Keith Pharis, Dave Sponseller, Steve Hill, and Tom Moore. 
The event with the most enthusiasm and participation this year 
as basketball. The teams were generally evenly matched with 
any close games being played. The favored team all through league 
jay was Gary John's team. During the tourney they were handi-

A Big Success 

On Saturday, May 14, the 
Juniors and Seniors met at War- 
rior Park for the annual spring 
steak fry. The privileged seniors 
came to eat their free steaks 
while the peasants (juniors) were 
busily grilling more. There were 
four of five grills going at once, 
but it was a job to keep up with 
those healthy, hungry seniors. 

The menu consisted of prime 
steaks, potato chips, baked beans, 
celery sticks carrot sticks, 
pickles, ice cream and soft drinks. 

We would like to thank all the 
juniors who helped in any way 
to make the Steak Fry a success. 
A special "thank you" goes to 
Greg Brondos, a noble senior 
who offered his skill as chef and 
faithfully grilled steaks until 
everyone had his fill. 

Following the Steak Fry there 
were various sports: volleyball, 
chasing the volleyball down the 
hill (only Alice Miller played 
this strange game), softball, 
miniature golf, horseback riding 
and sleeping (some were too full 
of steak to engage in the more 
active sports!). 

All in all everyone had a won- 
derful time, and the junior class 
sincerely hope that the seniors 
and guests enjoyed the evening's 
fun, food and fellowship. 

— Joanne Hines, Reporter. 

The last class meeting of the 
Sophomore Class was held main- 
ly for the purpose of electing of- 
ficers for next year. Those per- 
sons elected to guide the class 
were: President Jim Frasure, 
Vice-President: Tom Barkes, Sec- 
retary: Barbara Doxen, and 
Treasurer Ron Sturtz. Student 
Council Representatives are Nor- 
ma Faye Barker and Terry Black. 
Assistant Editor of Buffalo is 
Randall Erwin and Business 
Manager is Janie Stroupe. 

The last social gathering of the 
year for the Sophomores was a 
picnic at Warrior Path State 
Park. Activities and food were 
enjoyed by all who attended. The 
highlight of the evening was the 
presentation of a small token 
of appreciation to the sponsor. 
Miss Barthold. 

Orchids to the class officers of 
this year who so graciously gave 
their time and energy to help 
the class. 

The class is pleased with the 
success of their second year and 
is looking forward to even big- 
ger and better things next year. 

Girls' Intramurals 


Because of lack of cooperation 
from the weather man, softball 
schedule had to run a little long- 
er than usual. There were many 
girls who participated in softball 
and each of the five teams played 
the other teams two times. Direc- 
tors were Joanne Swinford and 
Bev Weller. 


Thirty-two girls entered the 
single elimination Bowling Tour- 
ney, which was under the direc- 
tion of Bonnie Allee. Joanne 
Swinford emerged the victor and 
Bonnie was runner-up, with 
Earlene Orman and Carolyn Hen- 
ley tied for third place. 

Commerce Club Meets 

Commerce Club met on Wed- 
nesday, May 18, for the election 
of officers of the coming year. 
They elected: President — Jay- 
nell Saylor; Vice-President — 
Martha Sue Orr; Secretary and 
Treasurer — Howard Hemming; 
Reporter— Claudia Saylor. 

It can't really be the Army that 
is shooting off these missiles, 
since we read that the countdown 
goes: "Four, three, two, one." in- 
stead of "Hut, tuh, thrip, hoh," 
as any old soldier would say it. 

Another drepressing feature of 
these early winter days is listen- 
ing to the fellow who is always 
"too busy" to vote. Complain 
about the way the election turn- 

Soldiers of the future will 
travel to unimaginable places: 
but 10-to-l. when they land on 
Mars, the natives will be selling 
silk pillow cases reading: "Greet- 
ings, Mom, from Outer Space."

Men's Intramurals 

(Continued From Page Three) 
capped by sickness and injuries, 
as were some of the other fav- 
ored teams. It was a dark horse 
team, led by Steve Hill, that, 
playing every game like cham- 
pions, won the tournament. 
These men, displaying a lot of 
ability and sportsmanship, were: 
John A. Williams, Jim Marshall, 
Butch James, Tom Barkes, Neil 
Conners, and Lyle Rittenhouse. 
They came from behind to win 
two games out of three from an- 
other fine team, led by Charlie 

A new addition to the pro- 
gram this year was the Foul 
Shooting Tourney. This tourney 
was won by John Wiggins, dis- 
playing an amazing degree of 
talent as he swished the nets for 
twenty-five baskets out of twen- 
ty-five attempts. Close behind 
him, missing only two and three 
attempts respectively, were Dave 
Brandon and Phil Storey. 

The year 1960 opened the doors 
for more Intramural activity. A 
swimming tourney was started 
with four teams participating. 
The captains of these teams 
were: Bill Schaff, Frank Harri- 
son, John Barkes, and Dave Eun- 
son. Unfortunately, conditions 
did not permit enough matches 
to be completed in order to de- 
termine a champion. 

Two individual participation 
events brought a degree of in- 
terest. Unfortunately, conditions 
caused these two events to be 
dragged out and some interest 
was lost. The Intramural Coun- 
cil has planned to make some 
changes in these events in order 
[to add more to the program. 
[Larry Spangler, a man who never 
held a bowling ball until he came 
to Milligan, won the tourney with 
an average of 143. Mickey Le- 
iMaster took second place and 
Dave Brandon and Don Alexan- 
der tied for third place. Dave 
Sponseller garnered first place 
honors in the Shuffleboard Tour- 
;ney, followed by Jerry Knepp in 
second place and Homer Neal 
[tied with Gordon Mahaffey for 
third place. 

I The Ping Pong Tourney, which 
iwas played in the Fall, had for 
I a champion, Harold Boyd. He 
'defeated Steve Hill for this hon- 
Dr. Third place was won by Larry 

Another new event this year 
lA'as the Men's Relay. This was 

Interclass Tourney 
Won By Seniors 

On May 2 and 3 a Girls' In- 
terclass tourney was held, spon- 
sored by the Intramural Council. 
Anyone wanting to play on their 
class team was eligible to join in 
on the battling. 

In the first game, the Sopho- 
mores defeated the Freshmen by 
a score of 29-26. In the second 
game the Juniors were topped 
by the seniors 29-10. In the con- 
solation game on May 3, the 
Juniors were again defeated by 
a margin of 26-8. The champion- 
ship game was an interesting and 
close one, but the seniors won 
again by a score of 29-25. 

Those who were brave enough 
to enter into the interclass com- 
petition were: Freshmen: Hope 
Deyton, Jackie Arrowood, Pat 
Wilbeck, Claudia Savior, Jackie 
Howard, Janet Knowles, Gerry 
Mabe, Joyce Cobb, Janet Spur- 
geon, Janet Grune, and Marty 
Goeller, Claire Spotts, Bev Wel- 
ler and Gwen Harper. Sopho- 
mores: Gail Jean, Nancy Sahli, 
Francis Shipley, Karen Ham- 
mond, Tina Penley, Bonnie Allee 
and Marilyn Hutton. Juniors: 
Dorie Whitesel, Connie Foster. 
Louise Roop, Mary Ann Garland, 
Louise Garlichs, Phyllis Laws, 
Shelva Sickafoose, Yvonne Shaf- 
fer and Claudia Say lor. Seniors: 
Joanne Swinford, Ruth Ham- 
mack, Kathy Whitford, Joyce 
Harris, Laura Nelle Hamilton, 
Linda Elliott, and Wanda Mc- 

a nationally sponsored event and 
the times were sent to the Na- 
tional Council. John A. Williams 
scored fifteen points to win first 
place. Charlie Tester and Emer- 
son Darst won second and third 
places respectively. 

The Softball Tournament had 
a bit of trouble scheduling games 
amidst the active sports calendar 
of the school and were unable to 
play enough games to determine 
a winner. The captains were: Ray 
Sheppard, Bill Houpe. Harry 
Shaw, Dave Morrow, and Tom 



The basketball team opened the season by taking a victory in, 
the Charity Bowl at Coeburn, Virginia, against Pikeville. Kentucky, 
who won the Indiana Invitational Basketball Tournament. 

They won 12 and lost 13 with a victory over State wrapped in 
between. Charles Tester, Lowell Williams, Terry Black Lew Tay- 
lor, and Bobby Sams were the five starters most of the season. 

Finally when the snow melted, Milligan's spring sports got un- 
der way. The track team opened with a victory over Cumberland 
and finished fourth in the VSAC in Nashville against schools three 
times its size. The nine boys making the trip were: Ron Sewall. Dick 
Howe, Steve Hill, Don Alexander, Dick Plymale, Jim Frasure, Joe 
Beeler, Dave Sponseller, and Sanford Dutton. 

Highlights of the season would be Dick Plymales' pole vaulting 
12' 10" for a new mark in the SMAC, where Milligan finished sec- 
ond. The mile relay team — Joe Beeler, first leg; Don Alexander, 
second leg, Dick Howe, third leg and Sanford Dutton, anchor set a 
new SMAC record with a 3:32 time. Alex was undefeated in the shot 
put, and Sanford Dutton only lost one in the 440-yard dash. 

The Basketball team had a poor season, but played schools that 
were much larger and had better balanced teams. John A. Williams 
led the slugging department with two homers and three extra base 
hits. Errors and weak hitting hurt more than anything else. 

The Tennis team finished a good season with a victory over 
State. They swept the doubles and were able to win 6-4. 

Sometimes I think that guys 
only live in the remote suburbs 
so that they can brag how much 
colder their back porch thermo- 
meter readings are than the of- 
ficial figures. 

Intramural Council Selects Officers 

Under the supervision of Coach 
Harold Stout, Intramural Sports 
Director, the Intramural Council 
has very effectively carried forth 
its duties. All of the members 
and especially the two presidents, 
Joanne Swinford and Dave 
Brandon, have done much work 
in order that this year's intra- 
mural events could be better 
than ever. 

At the last meeting, members 
for next year's council and of- 
ficers were elected. They are: 
Lowell Williams, Bonnie Allee, 

co-presidents; Nancy Sahli, Dave 
Sponseller, co-secretaries: pub- 
licity chairmen, Phyllis Laws and 
Bobby Hines. Other members are 
Gail Jean, Bev Weller. Jim Mar- 
shall, and Dave Brandon. At 
mid-term next year a male and 
female representative from the 
Freshman Class will be selected. 
This year's program has been 
quite a success. Both the Intra- 
mural Council and Coach Stout 
are to be commended for its be- 
ing such a success.

It Has To Be Earned 

Occasionally the remark is heard, "Boy, he's lucky," a remark 
about someone who has had a measure of success in life. Actually 
there has been very little luck about it in most instances. There 
is no substitute for sweat. Most success comes from sacrifice and 
hard work. High School diplomas and college degrees are award- 
ed to those who have finished the prescribed course. Some just 
"Get By" while others have a wider margin of accomplishment. 
The fellow that loafs through doesn't fool the teacher; he cheats 
himself. Each gets out of an education the amount of self and work 
he puts in. 

By the time he has completed his high school course one has pretty 
well determined his plans in life. He has pretty well charted his 
course. The unbeatable law is that whatever is obtained has to be 
worked for-and the harder to obtain, the harder the work. Success 
in life isn't handed out free— IT HAS TO BE EARNED. 

Welcome Newcomers 

Welcome freshmen, new faculty members and new upper class- 
men! We are so happy you have made Milligan your choice of 
schools. You have already become acquainted with the campus and 
are meeting the students and faculty. If any of us can be of as- 
sistance, feel free to call upon us. 

We are proud of our campus clubs and invite you to join those 
clubs which interest you most. We have organizations representing 
many aspects of life — spiritual, physical and mental. 

Your faculty advisors can be a great asset during your stay 
at Milligan. They are anxious to share your problems and to help 
you in any capacity in which they might be needed. 

But most of all, we hope to share Milligan's dreams and ideals 
with you. No aoubt you came to Milligan with your own set of 
dreams — a liberal arts education in a Christian atmosphere. You 
want to share with other young people the experience of realizing 
your dreams. Mulligan's goal is that you will not be disappointed 
and that your hopes will be fulfilled. 

Chamber Of Commerce Welcome Frosh 

Eight members of the Johnson City Chamber of Commerce 
were hosts to the freshmen at a "Coffee Break" in the dining 
room, September 20. The frosh were officially welcomed to the 
East Tennessee area by these business representatives from John- 
son City. 


This is expected to be a regular column in this paper. This 
writer sincerely hopes that it will be. The purpose of this column 
is to present a viewpoint of life on the Milligan College campus. 
That covers quite an area doesn't it? No person other than this 
writer is responsible for the ideas set forth here. He realizes that 
through the couise of this year, he will probably step on someone's 
toes. However, nothing in this column will ever be written with a 
malicious intent against any group or individual. He hopes that 
he may set forth the vews of the students and that any criticism 
will be taken as being constructive. 

Perhaps some of you will be opposed to his viewpoints. That 
is well and good. There will be a space provided in this paper 
for any of you who disagree with anything written here or else- 
where to express your opinions. 

We have a wonderful school, a marvelous faculty, a competent 
administration, and a fine student body. Let us all work together 
to preserve these. Only through a joint effort can we expect to 
see Milligan grow toward its future. Each of us has to work in his 
own way. Whatever methods we may employ, let us all pray that 
our ultimate goals will be the same. 

As this writer returned to school, he noticed a number of 
strange individuals wandering aimlessly about the campus with an 
odd sort of orange and black hats perched jauntily upon their 
heads. Immediately he deduced that these people were those 
strange creatures called freshman. They looked like freshman. 
They acted like freshman. They even talked like freshman. Yet, 
something was wrong. 

In previous years, the freshmen have been distinguished from 
the upper classmen by a spirit of enthusiasm and eagerness char- 
acteristic of those going through a pleasant experience whereas the 
upper classmen have portrayed a role of quiet understanding that 
is so characteristic of those who have been through that pleasant 
experience. This year, however, was different. There was a notice- 
able lack of interest and enthusiasm among the freshmen. Rare was 
the moment when this writer saw any spark of life. Not only was 
this strange behavior noticeable among the freshmen, but among 
the upper classmen as well. These noble sophomores, juniors, 
and seniors appeared to be totally in the dark as to any of the 
events of Freshmen Week. 

In the past, Freshmen Week has been unbelievably successful 
because of the close participation and cooperation of the upper 
classmen. This year, with a large portion of the upper classmen 
now are as to the schedule of the week, there was little or no 
participation and cooperation on the part of the upper classmen. 

The biggest Disappointment of this week proved to be the lack 
of spiritual feeling in the Freshmen Convocation. Even realizing 
that the weather was not cooperative, we still cannot conscientiously 
use that as an excuse. This writer's experience of entering MiUigan 
College was one of a moment of reverence and solitude. It was 
a feeling of humility and humbleness that was prevalent in the 
hearts of every individual present. That feeling was not shared in 
this year's Freshmen Convocation, but rather the feeling was of 
instruction and duty. The freshmen were given instructions and 
it became a duly to carry them out. The whole affair was handled 
in a lack-luster manner with little or no pretense of ceremony and 

What happened? What was the cause of this change? How 
could such a drastic change take place in the small space of a few 
months? Was it because the leaders of this week failed to inspire 
the freshmen? Did the upper classmen let down? Was it the fault 
of the freshmen? Or was it because the traditional Week of 
Wakandagi was tossed out the window like an old shoe and re- 
placed with three days of something called Greek Week'' Was it 
because those wonderful old institutions called High Council, Low 
Council, and that institution dear to all upper classmen called 
Holocaust Day abolished? Was it because the freshmen were 
thought to be too soft and fragile that the annual tug-of-war did 
not take Dlace? 

Perhaps all of these were causes in the let-down of this week. 
Surely, no one of these could have been the cause. Whatever the 
causes may have been is now of little concern. It is saddening to 
the upper classmen to know that a class has entered Milligan Col- 
lege and did not receive a warm ar.d hearty welcome, but rather 
became Milligan students in a luke-warm fashion. 

An experiment was tried. An experiment failed. This is 
called progress. Through experiments, we leam better how to 
handle the future. Yet with time-tested traditions present aren't 
experiments sometimes unnecessary? A tradition cannot be broken 
and replaced as we reDlace the lead in our pencil. The Week of 
Wakandaei is one of those traditions. It is a tradition that has 
served Milligan faithfully through the years. It deserves better 
consideration and treatment than it received this year.

The Rambler 

Although it is not in accord- 
ance witn the latest Paris fash- 
ions, the favorite "leisure attire" 
of many Sutton Hall girls has 
become men's football jerseys. 
They can be seen in different 
numbers: Donna Kaye's is 20, 
Norma Faye's is 55, and the big- 
ger they are, the better they are! 
Who knows — maybe the fad will 
spread to Paris. 

Another "latest fashion" being 
initiated here on campus are 
pantaloons. Unknown to many, 
Mrs. Bowers came attired in tne 
"fad of the 1890's" the night of 
the Faculty Reception. Braving 
cut on the path of adventure, 
Pat Combs went to Friday classes 
adorned in — you guessed it — pan- 
taloons. Perhaps, before long, all 
of the fairer sex may have to 
nave pantaloons to have a com- 
plete wardrobe. 

An added attraction to Webb 
Kail has been new curtains at all 
the windows. We are sure this 
has done a lot for the looks of 
the rooms and the whole dorm 
itself, but we miss the assort- 
ment of towels, rags, paper, etc. 
itnat were previously used to in- 
sure privacy.

Opinion Poll 

Frosh Expectations 
Of M. C. Revealed 

Its been three weeks and a few 
days since the freshmen arrived 
on the Milhgan campus." Now 
that they have gotten a taste of 
Mnligan life, a poll was taken 
tu see if Milligan is living up to 
what they expected. 

The newly elected president of 
the Freshman class, Dave Rob- 
erts says, "Milligan is what I ex- 
pected and more. What I like most 
about it is that its a college that 
shows interest in the students as 
individuals. The faculty members 
are so helpful and friendly. I 
really like it!" 

William Ware tells us that he 
thought the campus would be 
like some of the big universities 
— drab. "Milligan has thr most 
picturesque campus I've ever 
seen. The atmosphere is so pleas- 
ant to live in." 

Elaine Goble says, "Ah Clayah, 
Its just Wonderful!" 

How does Larry Sizemore like 
ii? Ask 'im! 

It seems Milligan has met most 
of the expectations of the fresh- 
men. Will the freshmen meet 
the expectations of Milligan?

There would seem to be no rest for anvone the=<> d?-"= and 
summer "vacation" meant many varied things to the Milligan 
Family in dispersion. Typical of M. C. students was Doug Saxton 
who worked in the Salt ivunes. 

There wasn't much time for making a complete survey, nor 
was there space to dwell on each phase. Fairly representative of 
.he men are these: 

Duane Calhoun was apprentice carpenter and apprentice brick 
nason for Barkley Lumber Company. Dick True was a summer 

replacement route man for Pep- 
perjuge rarm eatery. Terry 
Black was a salesman for Kitch- 
en Craft cooking utensils. OK 
Jin Yoo worked for a construc- 
tion company. Randall Barnhart 
worked in a sheetmetal shop. 
Harry Shaw was a Mortician. 
Don Holben studied Greek. Dr. 
Crouch was a gadabout. Earl 
Eidson was a loader at an air- 
port. Ed Green served as a Dep- 
uty Sheriff. Richard Hayes 
worked at a resort in New York. 
Paul Houston painted houses. 
Jim Eckard was a camp follower 
of the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

The women of Milhgan were at 
various jobs also. Dorothy Lis- 
ton worked with the registrar 
ft Round Lake Christian Service 
Camp in Lakevilie, Ohio. Janet 
Green made men's pants and got 
engaged. Janette King was a 
waitress. Miss Welshimer became 
a connaisseur of Arabian foods 
and made the high spots in Paris. 
Donna Flick was a secretary and 
bookkeeper. Judy Giles "sold 
shorts to big fat ladies." Pat 
Picklesimer was a cashier at 
Sears. Jean Wicoff was a recep- 
tionist at a millionaire's resort. 
Winefred Anne Smith worked for 
a finance company. Judy Rin- 
rert worked in an office of a 
four mill. Louise Roop was a 
law secretary. 

Several students, not receiving 
enough schooling during the 
year, were enrolled in summer 
school. Among these students 
were: J. D. Smith, Bev Weller, 
John Wiggins, Bill Smith, Donna 
Kaye Dial and Sheila Oiunger.

A look at this year's varsity 
sports situation shows a com- 
bination of bright and gloomy 
outlooks for the Buffs. The first 
and probably most popular dis- 
play of athletics — basketball — 
iopears to be in pretty good 

Most of the nucleus from last 
season's squad are back again 
for another "big year here at 
MILLIGAN folks." These are 
"1'oughy" Tester, "Moose" Wil- 
liams, "Bad Man" Black, and 
"Gunner" Lew. Deyton and Har- 
rell will be kicking up some dust 
for added strength. 

The big question is "What will 
the freshmen, transfers, and last 
year's ineligibles add to the pow- 
er of the thundering herd? "If a 
few of those GREEN newcomers 
shape up and get on Coach Walk- 
et's training WAGON — Look 

There is much optimism to- 
ward improving last year's so-so, 
win-a-few, loose-a-few season. 
The highlight of last year's play 
was when the Buffs emerged vic- 
torious over ETSC, which sort of 
got their GOAT. As a result, it 
was literally a small riot. 

The only losses were Bobby 
Sams through graduation and 
non-returnees Joe Beeler and 
Dick Plymale, who transferred 
I o Army. 

You say there is no football at 
MC? Well just go down to the 

r.iarsh-lands most any afternoon 
around 4 p. m. and you'll see 
some hand-picked professional 
' stacked" teams bashing heads 
together for the glory of our old 
alma mater. 

Somebody mentioned the other 
day that this was the only school 
they ever heard of that allowed 
members of a varsity sport to 
compete in intramural sports, 
which is supposed to be designed 
for more or less the amateur. 
This is a controversial point 
which could be discussed by the 
intramural council. 

That's all for now, but don't 
forget to "Back the Buffs" so 
you too can be a big athletic 
.•supporter on campus. 

Next issue, we take a look at 
the situation of this coming year's 
track team, a bit of a different 
story than the B-ball picture. 

Keep Silence, Friends 

Keep silence, friends, for some 
have come 
To cast their care on God to-

ful hearts; 
And some "Thy Kingdom

Keep silence; let Him speak 
To every heart — perhaps to 
you. TTJ

Religious Clubs 

Milligan College feels that 
there are many interesting and 
worthwhile clubs on campus. 
Here listed is a brief introduc- 
tion to the religious clubs on 
campus. We hope you will want 
to become a part of as many of 
these as is possible. 

The Christian Service Club, 
the oldest religious organization 
on campus meets every Monday 
evening for inspiration and fel- 
lowship. Membership is open to 
all students. To stimulate Chris- 
tian interest on campus this 
group sponsors various clinics 
throughout the year. The Chris- 
tian Service Club also plans 
gospel teams which hold services 
at many churches both near and 
far. Fred Norris is president, and 
Pive Steucher is vice president. 

The Ministerial Association 
forms one of the most esteemed 
groups on Milligan campus. All 
men preparing for the Christian 
ministry or other specific fields 
of Christian service are urged to 
become active in this group. They 
meet on the second and fourth 
Tuesdays of each month. Officers 
are: Dale Jacobs, president; Don 
Kolben, vice president and Lynn 


Everyone is invited to join the 
Missionary Fellowship. This 
group attempts to arouse interest 
in mission work by varied pro- 
grams and projects such as the 
missionary conference. The Mis- 
sionary Fellowship meets on the 
first and third Fridays of the 
month. Dwayne Calhoun is serv- 
ing as president with Dale Jacobs 
as vice president, Vaughn Ross 
as treasurer, Karen Guion as 
secretary and Karen Hammond 
as reporter. 

The Service Seekers are those 
girls interested in the woman's 
place in Christian work. These 
young ladies plan programs to 
acquaint themselves with phases 
of Christian service. Each week 
two or more Service Seekers 
work at the Children's Home in 
Elizabethton. The leaders are 
Janet Knowles, president. Joyce 
Cobb, vice president, Marilyn 
Knapp, secretary-treasurer and 
Pat Picklesimer, reporter. 

Men's Intramurals 
Begin Fall Activities 

The Milligan College intra- 
mural program is beginning to 
get into full swing now. The In- 
tramural Council met Monday 
night with Coach Stout and out- 
lined its program for the coming 
year, with each member of the 
council being named director of 
some sport. 

Tennis is the lid lifter for in- 
tramurals this year with the in- 
tramural tennis tournament 
which began Friday, September 

Football got underway on 
Monday, September 26, at 4:30 
Vvhen the Gamecocks tangled 
with the Untouchables. These are 
the only two teams in intramural 
football, but more teams are de- 
sired, and if more boys are in- 
terested in playing, they should 
set Coach Stout. 

Intramural basketball also be- 
fcan Monday, September 26. This 
enabled the coaches to get a look 
at varsity material for this year. 
The games will be played at 
right, with three games each 
right that games are played. 

The Intramural Council is 
looking forward to one of its 
greatest years. As for the stu- 
dent body, they will be looking 
to see who will over-throw last 
vear's champions; such as Moose 
Williams of tennis, the Game- 
cocks of football, Jim Marshall 
of badminton, Dave Sponseller 
of shuffleboard, Steve Hill's bas- 
ketball team and the bowling 
champ, Larry Spangler. 

Lists will be placed at various 
locations around the campus in 
order that every student, resident 
or commuting, may enter the

MC Students Will 
Try Anything — Once 

Marshall Hayden completed a 
three and a half day bicycle trip 
to school on Mondav, September 
12 ,1960. Coming 355 miles from 
Cincinnati, Hayden encountered 
everything from being rain- 
soaked to sleeping in churches. 

Two groups of Milligan stu- 
dents passed Marshall, unknow- 
ingly, on the trip south. Hayden's 
comments are: "One trip was 
enough to fulfill my crazy idea 1 "

here is a point in me at wmcn no excuses will avail. 

The door was shut. There was absolutely nothing to be

low it was too late. 

But the important thing for us to remember is that the 
rrivai at tne inexorable point ot nopiessness is always tne 
.umination oi wnat nas gone beiore; and tnat his desperate 
ngnt is avoidable if we are cominuany ready. 

Many of us are going to do great things . . . tomorrow,

ay. Ana tms corrupting nabit ot running behind scnedule

ringing jt us lace to tace witn a shut door. 

The demand that life makes on all of us is to be ready at 
11 times, to live neitner in tne past nor in the future but in 
le present. 

Until we learn that all-important lesson we cannot es- 
ipe the certain consequence that we are failing our tasks.

Fall Fashions For '60 

This year some old favorites 
are back as well as some new 
styles, designed by Vogue, Mc- 
Calls and various other famous 

Pointed shoes are back again 
bringing with them a saxcade of 
colors such as oranges, reds, pur- 
ples, greens, and blues, all in 
bold plaids or soft pastels. Girls, 
skirts are shorter this year, the 
style being knee-length or a 
quarter inch below. This calls for 
slimmer silhouettes. 

Long wool vests and over 
blouses are definitely IN. Inci- 
dentally, blouses will come out 
in fashion in full force this fall. 
They wiD be much more popular 
than in past seasons. 

Tob hair stylists have given 
long, straight tresses the Midas 
touch and so have caused a revo- 
lution in the old standard hair 

No need to spend a small 
fortune this season on clothes. 
The styles are made simply and 
within the easy reach of all. 
Milligan will be a bright, color- 
ful campus, fashion-wise, this 

when they left early on October 
9. The purpose ot ihe mp was 
to take Janet Spurgeon to 
Bradenton, Florida, the home of 
Donna Kaye and Jim. The trio 
ol travelers returned Tuesuay 
evening, very exhausted, after 
an enjoyable "get away."

rection was taken the same

Lee, and Anna Hiner. iius group 
went to ColumDus, Indiana. On 
the way back they stopped in 
Danvihe, Kentucky, to visit with 
Rum nammack, a 1960 graduate 
of Milligan. 

Presiuent Walker has also 
been doing his snare of travel- 
in)? laieiy. On September 18 he 
was in Chicago to speak at the 
deuication service for the new 
educational ouilcung of the First 
Chnst. an Church, formerly tne 
Lngiewood christian Church, 
irea P. Thompson, father of 
freshman Janet inompson, is the 
minister tnere. Other M. C. stu- 
dents referring to this as their 
"home church'' are Bob Ewbank, 
Bev Kleinjan and Bob Reit- 

baturday, October 10, Presi- 
dent Walicer and Dr. Dampier 
were m Wmcnester, Kentucky, 
where President Walker gave 
the address at the inauguration 
of President Burkes of South- 
eastern Christian College. An- 
other trip was made to at. Louis 
where president Walker attend- 
ed a meeting of the Continua- 
tion Committee of the North 
American Christian Convention. 

Larry Sizemore was host last 
Friuay night to a "slumber 
party" in Webb Hall. About 15 
guests, at one time or another, 
spent an enjoyable evening of 
games. Don Alexander was espe- 
cially pleased with the prizes. 

Gail Jean's favorite pastime 
has become corresponding with, 
o£ all places, Turkey. The added 
attraction to her room explains 
the sudden surge of air mail

Terry Black received an extra 
bonus for his successful selling 
of Kitchen Kraft this past sum- 
mer. A $200 check was sent to 
the school for him as a result of 
his having sold about $6,000 of 
merchandise. The bonus was part 
oz a scholarship program where- 
by the money was to be sent to 
the school of his choice. Con- 
gratulations, Terr}'! 

It's a risk to have a husband, a 

risk to have a son; 
A risk to pour your confidence 

out to anyone; 
A risk to pick a daisy, for there's 

sure to be a cop; 
A risk to go on living, but a 

greater risk to stop.

one set from each side, and curv- 
ing toward each other to the 
ground where they will be joined 
by a circular walk which will 
surround a fountain. A walk will 
lead from the fountain to the 
road, also. 
Classrooms Improve 

At the Aarmnistration build- 
ing considerable work has been 
in progress, much to the despair 
of some classes. Room 115 has 
been converted from a classroom 
into an advanced biology labora- 
tory, the room next to the boiler 
room has been made into a class- 
room, and is to be converted next 
year into a Chemistry lab when 
the library is moved into its own 
new building. 

OTS students using room 307 
should keep an eye open to prog- 
ress because a map of the Near 
East will be painted on one of 
the walls as soon as the plaster 
has aged sufficiently. 

Steps have been installed be- 
hind the Administration build- 
ing, along with a path from the 
Administration building to the 
baseball field parking lot. It is 
now less of a walk from the low- 
er parking lot to the Administra- 
tion building than it is from Har- 
din's parking lot to the Admin- 
istration building. All commut- 
ing students are asked to please 
use the lower parking lot. It was

■cted one — a Boston lawyer 
one Scratch, who carries a

They appeal to Daniel Web-

aiound Hardin. 

Concerning future plans, Dean 
Oakes had much to say. In the 
Administration building, a new 
chemical storeroom will be built 
next to the boiler room and the 
entrance to the Administration 
building from the Hopwood 
Church side will be opened for 
use. Tne steps from the first floor 
going down to the Chemistry 
labs will be one way down with 
exit through the now closed exit. 

The tennis courts are to be 
added to or removed to a dif- 
ferent site and their present ca- 
pacity will be doubled. 

Miss Welshimer will move her 
Dean of Women's office from 
Hardin to Pardee, when Pardee 
is completed. 
Future Plans 

Looking further to the future, 
the ultimate plans of the college 
look hke this: A new girl's dorm is 
proposed behind Sutton (on a 
higher hill), a new chapel is 
planned, Cheek is to be remod- 
eled and its capacity doubled, 
Pardee will be turned back to 
the boys (and Miss Welshimer), 
and the whole area between 
Cheek, the library, Pardee, and 
Hardin is to be relandscaped. 

The ideal student body sought 
will be €00 resident students. 
Present resident student popula- 
tion is approximately 415. 

Twirp Week Climaxes 

(Continued from Page One) 
Seated around the bonfire stu- 
dents sang and talked, and en- 
joyed tne performance of the 
"Salvation Army" band. 

A movie was shown in the 
auditorium on Thursday evening. 

Each night at supper daily 
court has been in session. His 
Honor, Gary Johns; Prosecuting 
Attorney, Gail Jean; and At- 
torney for the Defense, John 
Magill, were on hand to try all 
violators of Twirp Week rules 
and see that due punishment 
were given. 

Tne Junior Class is sponsoring 
Twirp Week, with Jim Frasure 
and Pat Combs as co-chairmen.

The Orchestra Club is a new 
addition to our clubs and will 
be under the direction of Mr. 
Hudson. At the present they are 
trying to get organized and their 
plans are incomplete. The or- 
chestra will consist of 15 to 20 
members who have had previous

Mid-Term Begin 
Fall Recess Comes 

Fall recess is coming 'round 
igain, and many of us cannot be- 
leve that the time nas gone by 


Fall recess will be four and 
ine-half days, from noon on Oc- 
ober 27, to tt a. m. November 2. 
'"all recess will be followed by 
/lid-Term examinations. There 
a'iII be a four-uay exam period 
rom November 14 to Novem- 
ier 17. 

There is little to say concern- 
rig these two events other than 
he fact that everyone seems to 
it looking toward fall recess 
vith enthusiasm, professors in- 

Dean Oakes tells us that the 
Jean s office will issue no ex- 
uses from classes before or aft- 
1 1 vacation. This is not to say 
hat something cannot be worked 
hut by teacners and students. 
It also informed us that "some- 
where in the Archives of the 
acuity minutes, there is grant- 

1 d permission to administer 
iouble cuts' during days before 
nd after a scheduled vacation." 

Although this IS a scheduled 
acation, and is well posted and 
oted in the catalog, the dining 
tall will not be closed over the 
all recess period. 


The Phys. ed. Club and the 
"M ' Club had their annual initia- 
tions last week and they both 
turned out to be a lot of fun 
even thougn, as a participant of 
both, 1 can safely say that the 
later was a wee bit rougher. Red 
Hot Hike, eh gang? Someone said 
that it was the first time they 
had ever been out in a hot and 
cold water rainstorm. 

One of the gripes of the boys 
that has been tossed around a 
little lately is the one of letter 
jac-Kets or coats for the varsity 
lettermen. In almost every other 
scnooi the varsity piayers re- 
ceive a choice of either a sweater 
cr a jacKet. Most or the letter- 
men are in favor of the jacket 
luea since the present policy of 
a black jacKet every year is a 
waste of sweaters in tne first 

Congratulations go to Jim 
Marsnail on Winning the men's 
intramural tennis tournament 
alter practicing hard all summer. 

The idea of a varsity golf team 
has been kicked around a lot m 
the last lew years also and we 
have a few good goiters here at 
ivnlligan who wouid like to see 
this finally become a reabty. Tms 
would give more of the boys a 
cnance to participate in varsity 

Wonder if that rumor is for 
real about a company in John- 
son City giving tne school free 
ashes or cinders for our "track." 

This year, because of the im- 
provement of the regulars and 

the added strength of some key 
newcomers to the team, the gen- 
eral concensus is that the base- 
ball team should finally have 
a pretty well-rounded team. The 
weak spot for years has been 
the pitching staff, but this year 
Coach Stout is hustling a 20- 
game schedule in view of the 
pitching prospects and the of- 
fensive depth and strength. 

Many fans wonder why Milli- 
gan never exactly comes up with 
a powerhouse in many sports. 
Well, there are many reasons for 
this and most of them are over- 
looked by the casual observer. 
The most important reason of 
all is "lack of funds," in the way 
of having any financial means 
by which to entice prospective 
stars to come to Milligan. Most 
athletes expect some fringe bene- 
fits somewhere along the line. 

Another reason for our slight 
weakness in general is the lact 
that there is omy one other school 
that we play which is as small 
as we are and it is hard to com- 
pete with larger schools which 
have more athletes to pick from. 

Now you say, "Well, how does 
Milligan fare as well as it does 
toi its size." The secret lies in 
the fact that the men practice 
their favorite sport all the time. 
This continual practice and fiery 
enthusiasm maices Milligan the 
respected school in sports that 
it is. 

So, today, a salute to the small 
rural college with the large 
metropolitan school spirit. Re- 
member, the bigger they are, the 
harder they fall, old M.C. 

Dorm Councils Elected 

The halls of Sutton, Pardee, 
Webo and Hardin are so quite 
you could hear a pin drop. The 
"terrors" of the college, the dorm 
councils have been elected to 
keep things under control. 

The president of the Women's 
Dormitory Council is Shelia Ot- 
tinger; secretary is Mary Blount. 
Other members are: Alva Lee 
Sizemore, Yvonne Shafer, Jan 
Matthews, Judy Pease, Lynn 
Fowler, Marty Cox and Sylvia 
Lumsden. The freshmen con- 
tributors to silence are; Ruth 
Ann Sims, Ann Becker, Nancy 
Rogers, and Myrtle Hyde. 

Tom Starnes presides over the 
men of Milligan College. Ed 
Green is vice president and John 
Barkes is secretary. Other mem- 
bers are: Bob Eubank, Ok Jin 
Yoo, Neil Conner, Tom Barkes, 
Dave Sponseller, Bob Deaton. 
Dana Young, Bob Dean, Sanford 
Dutton, Dan McClain, Harry 
Shaw, Dave Thompson, Bob 
Hines and Don Alexander. Bill 
Nice is the only freshman on 
the council. 


My mind was ruffled with small 
cares today, 

And I said pettish words, and 
did not keep 

Long-suffering patience well, 
and now how deep 

My trouble for this sin! In vain 
I weep 
For foolish words I never can

Gamecocks Win 
Intramural Football 

Tne Gamecocks have clinched 
the Intramural Football Cham- 
pionship for the second straight 
year, 'iney finished on top ahead 
of the Big 12 plus and the Un- 
toucnables. The Gamecocks went 
through this season undefeated 
and unscored on and have only 
D^en scored on one time in two 
years. The Gamecocks featured 
a potent offense, going mostly 
tl.rougn the air for their touch- 
downs, and a rock-ribbed de- 
fense, which held all their op- 
ponents scoreless. The Big 12 plus 
and the Untouchables also had 
tneir moments of highlights in 
a season of good, hard football. 
The members of the victorious 
Gamecocks are: 

Lowell Williams, Capt., John 
Wiggins, Bill Smith, Butch 
Jarnes, Dan McClain, Dick Howe, 
Ken uell, Jim Dial, Sanford Dut- 
ton, Dan Lee, Howie Ethrington, 
Larry Sizemore, Jim Bowyer and 
Don Alexander. 

The b.g surprise of the Intra- 
mural Football season came on 
Friday, October 14, when an all- 
star team composed of players 
fiom the Big 12 plus and the 
Untouchables, which included 
£arl Hobson, Doug Vaughan, 
Bob Greer, Larry Baldwin, Keith 
Dewey, Charley Goldmg, Dave 
Sponseller, Pete La Valley, 
Crockett, and Rankey, battled 
the Gamecocks to a scoreless 
deadlock. This was the best game 
of the year as both teams played 
good defense. The Gamecocks 
had a touchdown nullified by a 
penalty and had another drive 
fizzle out on the one-yard line. 
The all-stars only serious threat 
was late in the fourth quarter 
when they went down to the 
Gamecock three-yard line only 
to be denied a touchdown. 
Intramural Tennis 

This year's Intramural Tennis 
tournament was a big success 
with Jim Marshall beating Terry 
Black for the championship in 
two sets, 6-4, 6-2. Dave Brandon 
and Phil Pletcher tied for third

How Thankful We Are 

The Christian constantly expresses gratitude to God for 
all of the manifold and bountiful blessings He bestows steadi- 
ly upon His children. Not a day does past without an audible 
expression of thanks for daily food, shelter, clothing, loved 
ones, friends, the opportunity to serve in His church, for fel- 
low Christians, for home and family, for country, sea, even, 
sometimes for reverses. How thankful the Christian is for 
the open door to the throne -room of our Heavenly Father, 
never closed against us. Day or night we have access to Him 
through His son, our Christ. What a privilege 1 Our needs are 
few and simple, all are bountifully supplied by our Father 
who is in heaven. Health, food, shelter, and the opportunity 
to labor — all are rich blessings. There is an old proverb: "I 
complained because I had no shoes until I met a man who 
had no feet." No matter how little we may have of health, 
goods, friends — we can look about us and see others who have 

I like the thanksgiving prayer of the Scotsman: "Some 
hae bread and canna eat it, some hae nane and want it; but 
I hae bread and I can eat it and sae the Laird be thankit." 
Not on the fourth Thursday in November only, but every 
hour of every day we can take inventory and be grateful. 
How Thankful We Are! 

The above was taken from THE ENGLEWOOD CHRIS- 
TIAN, Indianapolis. Sometimes we forget to pray — too busy. 
As college students we have so much to be thankful for — the 
opportunity to come to school, teachers to help us further 
our learning, and friends from many states. Remember these 
in prayers of thanks during this season.

Meditation for October 
A sunny day, a quiet stream 

And nought to do but think 
and dream; 
My favorite mossy slope beneath, 

Above, a playful, gay sunbeam. 
Here silent music, like a wreath, 

Surrounds my heart; and 
The peaceful joy I know within 

That music sings, "There is 
no Death!" 
Can there be Death when Life, 

To spiritual joy, abundant in 
A heart is found? The quiet 


Flows gently on; I dream 
again. . . .

Features Paintings 

The week of November 7-12 
was Art Appreciation Week. Sev- 
eral of the Milligan College stu- 
dents have entered their art 
work and the art is on display in 
the Administration Building. 

The art work of the "Dark 
Scene" by Earl Hobson, as viewed 
by the writer of this article ex-

composition, and pleasing colors. 
The small boat in the foreground 
of the dark scene is drawn in 
descriptive detail with the lob- 
ster traps lying insiie the boat. 
The shack that is in the picture 
is of detailed description. 

Earl might have gotten his idea 
for the picture from the influence 
of the Virginia waters along the 
coast line.

son in high spirits. Tney will be 
appearing at the games in their 
black sweaters and pert orange

big boost to our team by forming 
their cheering block and really 
cheering the boys on to victory. 

M. C. Greets Alums 

To the present members of the 
Milligan family, Founders' Day 
has brought many new faces to 
the campus, but the campus is 
not new to these faces. Just as 
we have spent some of our most 
memorable moments here, so 
have these old grads. 

To most of the alumni the 
campus has taken on a new look. 
You might hear some of the wom- 
en say, "Living in Pardee, why 
I can't imagine it." For all "the 
visitors" the change in Pardee is 
a dream come true. 

Old friends are united and new 
friends are made. There are new 
families and additions to the old. 
A year has brought many changes 
and 10 years has brought much 
progress. Milligan may not be 
completely the same, but it is 
always good to be back. 

Some alumni news: Dave and 
Donna Poorman, '59, were hosts 
to a group of 1960 Milligan grad- 
uates over fall vacation, in Can- 
ton, Ohio. 

Ira Read is busy at Emory 
University in Atlanta doing grad- 
uate work. 

Linda McRoberts, Fred Smith, 
and Linda Snodgrass are cur- 
rently enrolled at the University 
of Kentucky in Lexington. Carol 
Boiling is attending Clinch Val- 
ley College. 

Joanne Swinford is getting 
married November 27 in Colum- 
bus, Indiana. 

Bill Houpe, Frank Hawks and 
the Phil Worrells' have new 
members in their families. 

Dorothy Eunson is Youth Di- 
rector on the Christian Church 
in Eustis, Florida. 

Scott Bartchy is attending Har- 
vard Divinity School under a 
tuition grant-in-aid. 

The Rambler 

Although hunting season is 
open, the game for which Mrs. 
Bowers and her "little helpers" 
(Betsy Lipscomb, Nancy Sahli, 
Anita Hiner and Bonnie Allee) 
were searching did not require 
a license or a gun. The object of 
their "expedition" — driftwood! 
The place of the "hunt" — Wa- 
tauga. The result — 53 pieces of 
driftwood and five exhausted, 
cold, and very muddy females! 
The use of the "game" — see for 
yourself at the Founders' Ban- 

Many things are learned from 
books. Just ask John Magill (bet- 
ter known as "Magoo"). While 
reading "The Sea Wolf," he found 
that a fire was started by popping 
a cap in the middle of some gun 
powder. He tried the experiment 
himself — in the room of Jim 
Frazure and Dave Sponseller — 
and found that it worked. Luckily 
this time it produced nothing but 
lots of BLACK smoke! Wonder 
if Mom Kinlaw ever found out 
where the fire was? 

Y'ou might say that Donna 
Swinesburger's car was "over the 
hill" last week when it rolled 
from its parking place in Sutton 
Hall parking lot. Jim Frazure, 
however, was quick to the rescue. 
He saved "the poor damsel in dis- 
tress" by driving it right up to 
its original spot. Luckily, the re- 
sult of the short drive was mere- 
ly a few scratches. 

Mrs. Ritz recently entertained 
the "kitchen crews" with a spa- 
ghetti dinner and all the trim- 

Cheerleaders Selected 

From a field of 15 contenders, the Milligan College student body 
selected five varsity cheerleaders and two alternates for 1960-61. 
Heading this year's squad as captain is Senior Anita Hiner. Other 
members of the squad are senior, Earl Eidson; juniors, Joy Fisher 
and Pat Combs, and freshman, Diane Hubbard. Tne alternate cheer- 
leaders are sophomores, Janie Aman and Kathy Meader. 

After two weeks of practice, the squad has worked up some 
new routines for this year. The cheerleaders will be working with 
the Varsity Voices in an effort to show more pep and enthusiasm at 
the games. Let's all get behind them and "boost the Buffs."

word from our sponsor, the In-

will be "Playday." Now, don't 
push the panic button, let us ex- 
plain. The day will consist of 
such invigorating activities as a 
ping-pong tournament, a shuffle-

various other excruciating activi- 
ties in which you may participate, 
if you have the correct partner.

Intramural Council 
To Sponsor 'Playday" 

On Saturday, DecemDer 1U, tne 
Intramural Council will sponsor 
a "Playday," which will consist 
of intramural activities such as 
ping-pong, foul shooting, snurfle- 
board, swim meets and other 
events for both boys and girls. 
Tne "Playday" will begm at 1:30 
and continue throughout the aft- 
ernoon. Everyone is invited to 
come out and take part in this 
new experiment in intramurals. 
Instead of having the events, such 
as ping-pong, snuffleboard, foul 
shooting ana swim meets at dif- 
ferent times during the school 
year, they will be held at the 
same time during the "Playday." 
Intramural points will be given 
to those who participate in each 

If you nappen to go by the gym 
any Monday or Tuesday night, 
you will see the round ball being 
put through the hoop by several 
eager intramural basketball play-

full swing now and there are 
twelve teams which promise to 
provide plenty of competition for 
the championship. Games will be 
played two nights a week, with 
each team playing every other 
team once, and ending the season 

With the coming of the holi- 
days, Milligan will be providing 
its students with many activities. 
Professor Tappa announced that 
the touring choir and tne girl's 
chorus will combine to give "The 
Messiah" in the main auditorium,

All the students will particu

Christmas banquet on the eve- 
ning of December 16. Decora-

Varsity Basketball Team, 
Schedule Announced 

Coach Walker launched the 
1960-61 season with a tough Bel- 
mont squad at home. With the 
Buffs showing four of last year's 
starters back, this was one of the 
most experienced teams that Mil- 
ligan has floored. Last year's top 
four scorers are back, they in- 
clude Charlie Tester, Terry Black, 
Lew T'aylor and Lowell Williams. 

This year's cagers are pointing 
to one of the toughest schedules 
ever held by Milligan. There are 
10 games to be played before 
the Christmas break. In these 10 
games only three teams among 
those which we played last year. 
New teams on the schedule are 
Belmont, Sewanee, David Lips- 
comb, Cumberland, and Chatta- 

nooga. All five of these teams 
are reported to be loaded this 
year. So it appears that last 
year's 13-14 record will not be 
improved upon this year. Coach 
Walker and his quintet will have 
their hands full to try and hit the 
.500 mark during the campaign. 

The schedule until Christmas is 
as follows:

Seven Seniors Make "Who's Who" 

Milligan College Is Accredited 

The realization of a dream and 
the attainment of a goal was ful- 
filled on Thursday, December 1, 
for Milligan College. On that day 
the Southern Association of Col- 
leges and Secondary Schools 
voted full membership for Mil- 
ligan, and thereby, full accredi- 

The achievement came after 
seven years of effort for accredi- 
tation and was possible only 
through hard work and effort by 
the Board of Trustees, adminis- 
tration and faculty. 

The annual meeting of the As- 
sociation opened on November 28 
in Memphis. President Walker, 
Dean Oakes, and Mr. Stahl were 
present from Milligan. 

On Monday they attended the 
meeting of CASC colleges (Coun- 
cil for Advancement of Small 
Colleges). Here Milligan was 
complimented on its progress in 
recent years which had led to the 
$25,000 U. S. Steel Grant received 
oy the school last month. 

Dean Oakes attended the 
Academic Dean's Meeting where 
the recruitment and development 
of college faculty personnel was 
the topic of discussion. Also, a 
greater effort to evaluate students 

in classes was stressed in order 
to find capable people who are 
interested in college work. 
Scholarships and additional help 
may be secured in college so that 
they can attend graduate school 
and prepare for college work. 

Among such grants are the 
Woodrow Wilson Scholarships. 
A committee will come to the 
campus soon to recommend eligi- 
ble seniors for these. 

At another meeting the prob- 
lems of counseling high school 
students in their preparation for 
college and the great part Col- 
lege Board examination should 
play in entrance were discussed. 

The open business session on 
Thursday at 9 o'clock was attend- 
ed by all three of those from 

Dean Oakes gave the following 
resume of that session: 

"It was 9:10 a. m. (10:10 Mil- 
ligan time) when the meeting 
finally opened. Two reports were 
given. Then the senior colleges 
for admission were named and 
Milligan was announced, but they 
still had to be voted upon by 
the committee. Following three 
other reports, the vote was taken

Christmas Party Vacation Begins 
IsTonight Tomorrow 

The last big event before leav- 
ing Milligan for the Christmas 
holidays will be a gala party 
sponsored by the Student Council 
for all students and faculty mem- 
bers tonight at 8:00 p. m. The 
affair will be semi-formal with 
entertainment following a ban- 

This year's theme will be 
"Christmas in Foreign Lands." 
This will give us a glance at the 
manner in which our foreign 
ineighbors spend their Christmas 
day. There will be unusual en- 
tertainment that all will enjoy; 
refreshments with a foreign 
touch; and singing in which all 
can participate. 

Saturday, December 17, is the 
big date on all calendars of Mil- 
ligan students, for on this day 
classes will end at noon and 
shortly afterward everyone will 
be homeward bound for the 
Christmas holidays. To sunny 
Florida and to the winter won- 
derland, students will be using 
all means of transportation to 
reach their destinations. 

Among the students various ac- 
tivities are planned — from sleep- 
ing late to party dates. 

Classes will resume Tuesday 

morning, January 3, 1961, and 

Milligan will again take its

Who's Who Among Students in 
American Universities and Col- 
leges is an organization that rec- 
ognizes students who are out- 
standing in achievement from 
approximately 750 colleges and 
universities. The organization 
submits a quota based on enroll- 
ment to each campus nominat- 
ing committee. This quota deter- 
mines the number of students se- 
lected for the honor each year. 

The committee at Milligan used 
a cumulative point-hour ratio of 
3.0 or higher as a basis for de- 
termining the eligibility of stu- 
dents for nomination. Each fac- 
ulty member then voted by 
secret ballot for students he con- 
sidered most deserving. The fol- 
lowing qualities were the criteria 
upon which they based their de- 
cision: scholarship, maturity, 
character, attitude, service to the 
college, and whether or not the 
student reflects the objectives of 
the college. 

These seniors were chosen to 
fill the quota for Milligan Col- 
lege for 1960-61: 

JOANNE HINES is a senior 
from Lizton, Indiana, majoring 
in English. She has been in Foot- 
lighters, SNEA, Varsity Voices, 
Service Seekers, and Christian 
Service Club. She has served on 
a Gospel team, Student Council, 
and Women's Dormitory Council. 
She was reporter of her junior 
class. She sang in the Collegette's 
trio her freshman year and has 
been in the Continentals for two 
years. She has been a member 
of the Choir for four years. 

SYLVIA LUMSDEN is a senior 
from Elizabethton, Tenn. She is 
majoring in Business Administra- 
tion. Sylvia has been in the 
Physical Education Club, Foot- 
lighters. SNEA, and Commerce 
Club. She has served on the 
STAMPEDE and Buffalo staffs, 
and also served on Women's 
Dormitory Council. She has sung 
in the Choir three years. She 
has received an honor scholar- 
ship award for the past three 

JACKIE ALFORD, a Business 
Administration major, is a senior

I am 1960, I am gone from you 
forever. I am the last of a long 
procession of yesterdays, stream- 
ing behind you, pouring into mist 
ana obscurity, then into the 
ocean of oblivion. 

Each of my days has been a 
burden of triumphs, of defeat, of 
laughter, of bitterness. I do not 
love you or hate you. I only 
judge you. 

1 nave no compassion; only To- 
day has that. I have no en- 
couragement for you; only To- 
morrow has that. 

I stand at the door of the past 
welcoming the single file of days 
that pass through, they join me. 
As you grow older I absorb your 
thoughts. You turn to me more 
and more, less and less toward 

My snows cumber your back 
and whiten your head. My icy 
waters put out your passions. My 
exhaltation dims your hopes. My 
dead loves, burnt-out enthus- 
isams, shattered dream-houses, 
dissolved illusions, move to you, 
surround you. 

Tomorrow come unnoticed. To- 
days slip by unheeded. More and 
more you become a creature of 
my Yesterdays. 

I am 1960. Learn to look me in 
world's Yesterdays. If you know 
enough to put your feet upon 
me, you can rise rapidly. But 
when you let me ride on your 
back, I strangle and smother you. 

I am 1960. learn to look me in 
the face, to use me, and not be 
afraid of me. I am not your 
friend. I am your judge and your 

Tomorrow is your friend. 

Christmas Brings 

Along with the many joys of 
Christmas come countless beau- 
tiful and exciting customs. Few 
of us know where the legends 
and stories those customs came 
from. Do you know why candles 
are used so much at Christmas 
time? Where did the custom of 
the Christmas tree come from? 
These questions lead us to many 
different customs. 

The bright glow of a candle 
symbolizes Christ, the Light of 
the World. When candles are lit 
at Christmas Eve, they signify 
the birth of the Light. 

The customs of ringing the bells 
on Christmas Day comes to us 
from Scandanavia. The people 
centuries ago believed when 
Christ was born, the devil died. 
The bells toll for the dead, but 
praise the birth of Jesus. The 
silvery ring of the bells from the 
church steeple summon the faith- 
ful, but at the same time, terrify

The flaming yule log represents 
the fire and warmth of Christian 
faith. In England, if the log goes 
out before it burns through, 
someone in the house lacks faith 
and if he is found, he will be 
severely punished. 

Exchanging gifts at Christmas 
comes from the Wise Men who 
brought gifts to the newborn 

One of the most colorful leg- 
ends is the one of the Christ- 
mas tree. One story says that God 
sent three messengers — Faith, 
Hope, and Love — to find a sacred 
tree. The tree was to be as high 
as Hope, as wide as Love, and 
must have the sign of the cross 
on every bough. At last they 
found the sacred tree — the Bal- 
som Fir. 

Another legend of the Christ- 
mas tree comes to us down 
through the centuries from merry 
old England. Once upon a time, 
there lived a holv man in Eng- 
land called St. Wilfred. At a 
gathering one day Wilfred cut 
down a high oak tree, the symbol 
of heathenism, to free the people 
forever from heathenism. When 
the giant oak crashed to the 
ground, it broke into four pieces. 
From the center grew a tall, beau- 
tiful Fir tree. The Saint pro- 
claimed that this should be the 
Holy Christmas tree. When kept

and Emily Ruckman) celebrated 
her birthday (sorry — she doesn't 
want to reveal her age) in De- 
cember, by an early morning 
breakfast of fruit salad, donuts, 
and milk. Phyllis was very much 
surprised and she even blew out 
all the candles on the donuts! 

Hope Deyton spent a reward- 
ing weekend Dec. 3-4, as she 
came back with a little extra 
weight on her left hand — a dia- 
mond. Surprisingly enough, it 
doesn't even hinder basketball 
playing, much to the dismay of 
all except team 4. 

A quick trip to Room 318-319 
(the suite of Barb Doxen, Janie 
Stroup, Frances Shipley, and 
Claudia Saylor) of Sutton Hall 
leads to many experiences! Don't 
let the tape on the floor get you 
confused. Any sane human could 
tell at first glance that when you 
unhook the shelf curtain, fold it 
in half and hook it on a chair, 
they have a ping-pong table. 
Wonder which one of them will 
be this year's intramural ping- 
pong champ. 

It seems as though hats have 
become quite the fad of the males 
on Milligan campus. Several of 
the members of the basketball 
team came back from Nashville 
with new toppers. "Moose" Wil- 
liams, Doug Vaughn, and Rusty 
Stevens have these "souvenirs 
from Nashville," with such beau- 
tiful feathers too! Don "Alex" 
Alexander has a "one and only" 
(thank goodness) creation that is 
quite original. 

Coach Harold Stout had quite 
a distinction at the Girls' Volley- 
ball Play Day at State College 
Saturday, December 3. Out of 
the nine coaches who were there 
with their team, he had the dis- 
tinction of being the only male! 
The volleyball team wishes to 
thank Coach Stout for the time, 
enthusiasm, and advice he gave, 
enabling the team to end up in 
third place. 

in the warmth of the home dur- 
ing Christmas, its wood brings 
peace and goodwill. Its evergreen 
signifies Eternal Life, and it 
points toward the Heavens as a 
constant reminder of God and 
the Saviour. The people were to 
surround it not with greed and 
anger, but with loving gifts and 
good deeds. 

Holly is used as a symbol of 
Christmas because legend tells 
us that the crown of thorn was 
woven from holly. Its red berries 
signify the drops of blood from 
the brow of Christ. We decorate 
our homes and doors with holly 
because it's a marvelous witch 
repellent, and it drives away 
those evil spirits too.

New Club Formed Vocal Group To Appear In Ohio Buffs Suffer on 

Named "Spotlighters." 

We welcome to the Milligan 
family of clubs the "Spotlighters." 
This club has been unofficially 
operating for the past year and 
one-half and became official 
three weeks ago. The purpose of 
the club is to provide lighting 
for all Milligan College groups 
which request the assistance of 
the club. The first official meet- 
ing was held on Wednesday, No- 
vember 30, when the club elected 
Charles Fulks president and Leon 
Hopson secretary-treasurer. The 
club sponsor is Mr. Tappa. 

In the past, the members have 
provided lighting for chapel pro- 
grams, movies, H.M.S. Finefore, 
Down in the Valley, College Con- 
cert Series groups, and many 
other events. 

As a club, the "Spotlighters" 
have been assigned to do all 
chapel programs, Junior class 
movies, music productions, and 
the Footlighter's spring play. 

The charter members of the 
"Spotlighters" are David Mc- 
Bnde, Leon Hopson, Charles 
Fulks, Robert Deyton, Lynn Se- 
ger, and Larry Brandon. 

Any person interested in the 
"Spotlighters" may contact any 
of the charter members for more 
information concerning this new 
and growing club. 

Early in 1960, a vocal group 
was formed to make one tele- 
vision appearance. Adam Korenc- 
zuk rehearsed the eight voices in 
his arrangement of "We Praise 
Thee, O Lord," partly as an ex- 
periment at using an American 
group with a Russian song. The 
students then stayed together, de- 
ciding to call themselves the 
"Continentals," because they rep- 
resent both North and South 
America, Adam being originally 
from Argentina. 

This year, after reorganization, 
they began regular rehearsals 
three days a week and worked up 

12 numbers in a period of four 
weeks. To date, they have made 
six appearances and have been 
invited by Dr. Paul Jones to per- 
form in Hillsboro, Ohio, sometime 
in February. 

T'he "Continentals," sing a va- 
riety of songs from the national 
music of Russia, Germany and 
Spain to spirituals and anthems. 

The singers, Claire Spotts, Nor- 
ma Faye Barker, Joanne Hines, 
Judy Pease, Wayne Colter, Adam 
Korenczuk, John Starr, and Shel- 
burn Ferguson, say they enjoy 
thpir music very much. 

Men's Intramurals 

By BOB and DAVE 

Intramural Playday Big Success 

T'he intramural playday on Sat- 
urday, December 10, met with 
huge success, as several boys and 
girls turned out to compete in 
the various activities. 

Activity got under way at 1:00 
in the gymnasium, with ping- 
pong, shuffleboard, foul shooting 
being offered for both girls and 
boys. There was very good par- 
ticipation in each activity, with 
points being given to every per- 
son who entered an activity. 

Jim Marshall won the ping- 
pong tournament in the boys' di- 
vision and Nancy Sahli was the 
girls' winner. The runner-up for 
the girls Sylvia Lumsden. 

In the foul shooting contest, 
Bobbie Hines won the boys' di- 
vision by hitting 23 out of 25 
free throws. Bill Smith came in 

Long Trip 

Coach Walker and the local five 
made a very disasterous trip, in 
more ways than one. With three 
of the first five on the sick list, 
the Buffs were very sad after the 
long journey. T'he first game be- 
ing played with Sewanee, with 
only two starters ready the Buffs, 
got put on the short end of a 
69-46 score. T'he Belmont game 
saw an inspired Belmont five, 
who had been defeated only the 
week before by the same Buff 
squad, squeeze through 70-68 
with the aid of the Buffs' sick- 

The Buffs then ended their trip 
by taking a thump on the head 
by David Lipscomb, 91-60. Lips- 
comb's superior height jolted 
down the Buffs after a 41-41 half- 
time tie and breezed on to their 
victory in the second half as the 
Buffs couldn't find the range. 
This ended the road trip and put 
Milligan's record at 1-4. Let's all 
back the Buffaloes and try to im- 
prove on this record. Of course, 
the King win helped and has set 
the pace for more wins. 

second as he hit 20 out of 25 
free throws. Gail Jean was the 
girls' winner as she made 6 out 
of 10 tosses at the bucket. 

Bonnie Allie's 5 throws out of 
10 attempts was good enough for 
second place. 

Extramural Basketball 

An extramural basketball team 
has been formed at Milligan. The 
team is composed of boys who 
made the All-Star Intramural 
team last year, plus a couple of 
freshmen. This team will be 
playing preliminary games to the 
varsity games this season. The 
team consists of: Gary Johns, 
John Wiggins, Dave Brandon, 
Dan McClain, Charley Golding, 
Danny Lee, Dick Howe, Darrell 
Hiatt, Phil Storey, Bill Smith 
and Kyle Wallace. 

M. C. Is Accredited 

(Continued from Page One) 

at 9:35, (time for chapel to be 
over), and Milligan was admitted 
and we left. The call was made 
in one minute to Dr. Dampier 
and he was simply told, 'We're 
in!' Then he took care of the an- 
nouncement on campus." 

Full accreditation is a great 
step in Milligan's history and will 
be a stepping stone to greater 
gains in many areas in the fu- 
ture. Much credit is owed to 
many people all over the coun- 
try who have stood behind the 
college in their program directed 
toward this goal which has now 
been reached. 



Shock! Shock! (We wanted a 
startling opening). 

Pardon our error concerning 
the date for Play Day. It wasn't 
Sept. 27, at all! It's January 32. 
(Really it was the very last Sat- 
urday). Congratulations to the 
winners, especially considering 
the fact that Speedball Sizemore 
was "big" enough to relinquish 
her chance of glory by not enter- 
ing the tournament. Our nomina- 
tion for the good sportsmanship 
award is Alva Lee. 

The recent trip to East Tennes- 
see State College resulted in our 
intramural volleyball team plac- 
ing third in the state of Tennes- 
see. Deep appreciation goes to 
Coach Stout who spent time 
coaching the team, and also to 
the many Milliganites who came 
to cheer the team. (Hog, how 
about that view from the bal- 

Judging from the language 
from the gym, it is very evident 
that the girls have started bas- 
ketball. We figure that the girls 
are hitting .06 per cent of their 
shots, giving them the benefit of 
the doubt.

//hat About Love? 

Love has many ways of expressing itself, but in general 
he ways are two — the practical and the sentimental. Which 
s the higher and better way? It is merely a question of ap- 
>ropriateness under the circumstances. Love must express 
tself very often in coal, food, clothing, and the necessities of 
ife. But let it not be concluded that love may not express 
tself in acts of pure sentiment. The soul has needs. Sympathy 
ind tenderness and friendship are just as real and more en- 
luring than coal and food. Sometimes a flower is more im- 
>ortant than flour; sometimes a word of cheer is better than 
;old. — Copied

Perhaps Anita Hiner was the 
first in history to be "happy" 
about being short-sheeted. Since 
she uses sheets of two different 
colors, she had always been 
passed up previously when the 
short-sheeting was being done. 
She was so excited at finally 
having experienced what it is 
like to be short-sheeted that it 
took some of the fun out of it.

Faculty Travels 

President Walker flew to Den- 
ver, Colo., on January 9 to at- 
tend the annual meetings of the 
Council for the Advancement of 
Small Colleges and the Associa- 
tion of American Colleges. 

The theme of the Association 
of American Colleges was the 
role of college presidents in the 
academic life. It was stressed at 
the meeting that the common 
responsibilities and concern of 
the entire administrative staff 
and faculty is in quality educe 

On January 3 President Walker 
went to Indianapolis to preside 
over the annual meeting of the 
European Evangelistic Society. 
This society maintains an educa- 
tional mission in Tubingen, Ger- 
many, in which Earl Stucken- 
bruck is the representative. Mr. 
Stuckenbruck was formerly a 
member of the Milligan faculty. 
Mrs. Thomas, of the faculty, was 
a former member of the church 
in Tubingen where Mr. Stucken- 
bruck serves. 

Dr. Fife visited his borther, 
Tom Fife, in Baton Rouge, La., 
over the weekend of January 18. 
While there he attended the 
ordination of his brother into 
the ministry. Mr. Tom Fife is 
now minister at the Central 
Christian Church in Baton Rouge. 

Over the Christmas vacation 
Mrs. Bowers and her family 
visited relatives in Florida. They 
visited the Fairy Land in Tampa, 
the Kapok-Tree Inn beside the 
largest tree in Florida, and the 
city of Miami, among other 

Between semesters Mr. Mont- 
gomery went home to Knoxville, 
and Miss Turbeville visited her 
sister for a few days. 

We hear that Mary Alice has 
been keeping rather late hours 
lately — and Earl is doing the 
same. Could it be that they are 
really studying??? (You old 
"stick in the mud.") 
« * « 

Registration day was a day for 
fun (?) for a few (!) forward- 
looking people. While waiting in 
the business line (hate to bring 
back such morbid memories), 
Judy Rinnert, Dan "Ole" Mc- 
Clain, Bev Kleinjan, and Dave 
Thompson complete one thrilling 
game of Pachesi ("Ole" was the 
winner) and almost finished an- 
other. Down the line a bit an- 
other group was engaged in a 
heated game of Chinese Check- 
ers. Joanne Hines, Richard Hayes, 
Mary Jane Barkley, and Duane 
Calhoun were among those who 
were equipped with books to 
read during "the big wait!" 
* * • 

Another tournament which is 
held periodically after the eve- 
ning meal is one which holds the 
attention of many Milligan stu- 
dents. This time the heated tour- 
nament is that challenging game 
of checkers. The contenders are 
none other than Don Alexander 
and Dixie Mottem. Actually 
Dixie is no match for "Alex" 
(meaning, of course, she is much 
better than he), but with the aid 
of his "little friends," Donnie 
always seems to win. Surprisingly 
enough, toward the end of the 
game, "Alex" always seems to 
have four kings, no matter how 
many times Dixie jumps them. 
Must be magic, eh Donnie??!!

This year's annual, THE BUF- 
FALO, is in the final stages of 
completion. The last minute rush

Baseball Season Rolls 
Near For Buffs 


The warmer weather and the 
sight of spring brings up the 
thought of baseball. But in the 
past few years that hasn't been 
a very pleasant sound here at 

The word is out that this should 
be the year for baseball on the 
banks of the Buffalo. There is 
a new set of uniforms awaiting 
this year's squad, which alone 
should put a spark into the team. 
Coach Stout has gathered up 
some talent this year that looks 
very promising, and should add 
much to the bogged-down line- 
up of last year. Some of these 
new men whom Coach Stout is 
counting on heavily are Randy 
Wright, John Pickford, Bob 
Greer, Paul Hall, and Don Pick- 
ford. A couple of boys who didn't 
play last year but are lettermen 
and will be a welcome sight are 
Hack Hyder and Marshall Mil- 
horn. Along with the new faces 
there will be the following boys 
from last year's squad: Sanford 
Dutton, Gary Aldridge, Charlie 
Golding, Bobby Hines, Ken Bell, 
Dan McClain, Phil Storey, and 
Tom Starnes. All of these boys 
should form a good basis on 
which Coach Stout can build up 
a winning team for the 1961 sea- 

Last year's two victories, which 
included Emory and Henry and 
Union, should be much improved 

Service Seekers 

The Service Seekers had Pat 
Wilbeck as the speaker at their

New Students 

(Continued from Page One) 

Don McConkey is a freshman 
majoring in pre-dentistry and 
represents that fine southern 
state of Alabama. His special in- 
terests revolve around tennis, 
girls, and all others sports. Don's 
only comment for Milligan was: 
"I like it better than the first 
time I was here, but I find it 
a little hard to get acquainted." 

Some of the new faces have 
been a part of Milligan before. 
Jackie Howard, who hails from 
Florence, Ky., has returned and 
will major in religion. Judy 
Sparks, first semester Junior 
from Corinth, Miss., is back to 
continue her studies, also major- 
ing in religion. Joe Bryant, a 
North Carolina native, will con- 
tinue his work in Business Ad- 
ministration after a semester's 
absence. Lee Trout adds to the 
Hoosiers represented on campus 
and will rejoin the Sophomore 
class as a business major. 

The following students you will 
see from time to time. They rep- 
resent our new commuters for 
this semester: Hack Hyder, Mar- 
vin Johnson, Dewey Lewis, James 
Stevens, Joy Shipley. Leroy Per- 
kins, and Jay Wheeler. 

The older members of the Mil- 
ligan family extend the hand of 
friendship to these students as 
they work with us in the coming 
months of study and fellowship.

The annual Intramural Basket- 
ball Tournament began Monday, 
January 27, with 12 teams par- 
ticipating. The tournament will 
be a double elimination type, 
with each team having to lose 
two games before being elimi- 

Teams 10 and 11 opened the 
tournament Monday night with 
Team 10 winning, 41-37. John 
Wigggins hit 23 for the winners 
and Buddy Solkol had 14 for the 
losers. The second game Monday 
saw Team 12 winning rather 
easily over Team 7, 54-35. Dar- 
rell Hiatt had a good night in 
hitting 24, and Frank York paced 
the losers with 14. The final 
game of the day between Team 
5 and Team 6 saw the former 
coming out victorious, 38-32. 
Emerson Darst hit for the high- 
est total of the tournament thus 
far, getting 26 points. Kyle Wal- 
lace hit 11 for his team. Prob- 

ably the best game of the tour- 
nament so far was played on 
Wednesday night and found Team 
8 edging Team 4, 39-37. David 
Herndon had 13 for the winners 
and David Brandon hit 14 for 
his team. The second game of 
the evening resulted in Team 10 
defeating Team 1, 37-30. Team 

10 was paced by Bob Greer who 
had 17 points and Steve Hill had 

11 for the losers. The first Fri- 
day night game found Team 8 
rolling past Team 9, 52-34. Dave 
Herndon led the way for the 
winners as he banged in 20 
points. Jim Marshall and Homer 
Neal each hit 10 for their team. 

The double elimination tourna- 
ment will continue each week 
until a champion is crowned. 

Through first round games of 
the tournament, David Herndon 
leads all scorers with 33 points. 
Emerson Darst has hit for 32, 
followed by Bob Greer with 28, 
John Wiggins with 27, and Dar- 
rell Hiatt with 24.

M.C. To Participate 

(Continued from Page One) 
Nashville newspaper publishers 
are giving a prize for the best 
issue of a college newspaper. The 
top two manuscripts in each 
category are bound and sold to 
members and visitors. The rec- 
ognition is the greatest reward. 

Only unpublished material (ex- 
cept in college newspapers) is 
eligible. Each manuscript must 
be typed, double-spaced, on one 
side of the paper, and should 
bear neither the name of the 
author nor the name of the 
school. These should be placed in 
a sealed envelope with the title 
and category on the outside. 

All entries must be in the 
hands of the secretary, Belmont 
College, not later than March 1. 

On the program of the meet- 
ing will be John Crowe Ransom, 
Donald Davidson, Randall Stew- 
art, and other prominent per- 
sonalities. A circle theater offer- 
ing by Belmont students, a glee 
club performance, a banquet to 
honor the award-winning writers, 
and recreation will highlight the 
program for the three days. 

It is hoped that several repre- 
sentatives from Milligan will at- 
tend this Southern Literary Fes- 
tival Association meeting and 
that several will submit manu- 
scripts in the competition. 

For answers to any questions 
and further information, inter- 
ested students should contact Dr. 
Franklin Walker as soon as pos- 


Basketball — 

The girls all-star team will be 
chosen early so they can practice 
a few times before they slaughter 
the boys (excuse me, MEN'S) 
all-stars, so be considering whom 
you want on this team. 

The intramurals are coming 
along fine, with no major in- 
juries so far, but don't give up 
hope. There have been many fine 
games played with various types 
of sportsmanship displayed. 

Speedball Sizemore has really 
found her calling in the field of 
bowling (setting pins). We are 
expecting a big splash from her 
in the pool. 

Many girls are studying con- 
ditioning and one fortunate boys 
class (freshman) will be honored 
to have them as teachers. 

And then there is the educator 
who came up with this one: "1 
shall now illustrate what I have 
on my mind," said the professor 
as he erased the blackboard.

Students Visit Emory 
And Henry Campus 

On Thursday, March 9, several 
students representing various 
phases of student life here at 
Milligan visited the Emory and 
Henry College campus at Emory, 
Virginia. This visit was a pari 
of an exchange program con- 
ducted by the Emory student 
government with different 

Upon arrival, the group was 
given a tour of the campus and 
the buildings to see the type of 
situation at the school. Then 
meeting with a similar group of 
Emory students, a discussion was 
held in which various problems 
of the schools were discussed and 
compared. Through this exchange 
many ideas and ways to solve 
problems were gained by both 
groups. After the discussion,

Alpha Psi Reinstated 

The Alpha Psi Omega national

stated here at the school March 
8, 1961. The Alpha Psi chapter 
at East Tennessee State College 
initiated the Milligan students 
into the organization at the 
Patchwork theater on the State 
College campus. Those initiated 
were: Philip Pletcher, Cast Di- 
rector; James Eckard, Stage Man- 
ager; Donna Flick, Business Man- 
ager; Mary Johnson; Joseph 
David Smith; and David Lee 
Thompson. The faculty advisor 
for the Milligan chapter is Pro-

Milligan Holds Summer Session 

Milligan College has taken an- 
other step forward by offering a 
summer-school session for the 
first time in recent years. This 
session will begin June 5 and 
continue through July 15. 

Courses will be offered in the 
fields of art, Bible, biology, bus- 
iness, chemistry, English, history, 
mathematics, music, physical 
education, Spanish, teacher edu- 
cation, and typing. A minimum 
of five people requesting a sub- 
ject is necessary for that particu- 
lar course to be offered. A stu- 
dent may carry a maximum of 
seven hours and it is possible to 
complete one year's study in a 
particular subject during this six- 

week period. The approximate 
cost of the summer session will 
be $175.00. 

The surrounding area provides 
recreational opportunities, such 
as lakes and mountains, to make 
a student's stay more pleasant 
during the summer months. Anr' 
as an added attraction, there will 
be 50 superior high school stu- 
dents living on Milligan campus 
and studying at Science Hill High 
School, during the summer-school 

Anyone who plans to take ad- 
vantage of Milligan's summer 
school should speak to Dean 
Oakes about it in the near future. 

Tennessee, Kentucky, North 
Carolina, South Carolina, Geor- 
gia, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, 
Illinois, Wisconsin, and Mary- 
land — sounds like a dream tour 
of the eastern United States. In 
reality it is just a list of many 
of the states visited in the past 
by the Milligan College Touring 

As most of the Milligan stu- 
dents head for their various 
homes on March 25, the choir 
will be leaving the campus head- 
ed for the state of Florida on 
their annual tour. This year's 
choir is looking forward not only 
to the concerts and contacts 
which they will be making, but 
also to the opportunity of soak- 
ing up some of that famous Flori- 
da sunshine. 

The choir will sing in North 
Carolina and Georgia on the 
route. The concerts include: 

March 26— Rural Hall and High 
Point, North Carolina. 

March 27 — Roanoke Rapids, 
North Carolina. 

March 28 — Williamston, North 

March 29 — Savannah, Georgia. 

March 30— Orlando, Florida. 

March 31 — Miami, Florida. 

April 2 — St. Petersburg, and 
Clearwater, Florida. 

April 3 — Bainbridge, Georgia. 

April 4 — East Point, Georgia. 

Saturday will mark the day 
when the choir will once again 
have the daily routine of a 
"Choir on tour." Each person will 
experience the early rising, 
breakfast, meeting at the church, 
lunch, arrival at the church, 
preparation of concert, supper, 
concert presentation, and then 
they retire and call it a day at 
the homes of the many mem- 
bers of the church.

It's cancer Kids! And it's spreading as fast as cancer 
Erom one individual (cell) to anotner individual. The only 
soreness is from a severe Bump. A Bump that complains about 
the lack of sometning to do on campus, yet nicely closes its 
Dores to the pleas of groups for working members, or cuts 
ine in the cafeteria for no reason than a selfish one, or sits 
it the Sub laughing at those who go to prayer meeting, or 
Criticizes and gossips about others, or talks hours upon hours 
ibout the inadequacies of our present system, or flies off the 
landle whenever something goes against the wishes of the 
Bump . . . and we could go on and on! 

We have all had many such Bumps and the worst part 
s that the first sore spot spreads its irritations and may even 
lecome a Bump in itself. If this disease continues spreading, 
t is sure to kill. Therefore, we must all search for the cure 
ind try to change the Bumps once again to constructive 
vorkers and enthusiastic members of the student body. It's 
ime to stop this disease that has infected us all in varying 
legrees. Don't try to bring the cure to someone else — begin 
vith yourself, and diagnose the case. Then put the remedy 
nto effect! 

Let's all say "Get Well" to the poor misguided, and 
iching Milligan spirit, interest and enthusiasm and get it on 
ts way to a complete recovery.

mously voted as the best dressed 
player on the tennis courts (keep- 
ing in mind, of course, that 
"Moose" hasn't yet started to 
practice, and will probably run a 
close second). "Wig's" shocking 
pink burmuda shorts with co- 
ordinating shirt are "tops" in 
tennis fashions! 

During the last few months 
Phyllis Laws has had a number 
of more or less "lost weekends," 
thanks to a certain Bob Jones 
University student. This past 
weekend she emerged with an 
extra piece of jewelry. Where is 
it you're spending spring vaca-

Earl Hobson and Bill Smith have

anyway!) warm-up shorts at one

games, much to the embarrass- 
ment of two certain young ladies 
in the stands! 

Perhaps one of the most cele- 
brated personalities on campus 
these last few weeks has been 
Miss Violet Muse. Being the 
sports enthusiast that she is, Miss 
Muse was the faculty cheerlead- 
er in the recent Girls' All-Star 
vs. Faculty game. Needless-to- 
say, she made quite a hit! We 
hear she is quite the "angler"

In past years the experiences 
of these tours have proved to be 
wonderful for the students be- 
cause of the fellowship, warmth, 
and love extended them by the 
churches wherever they went. 
Also, the churches have been en-

students and coming in contact 
with the life of the school through 

At the end of the last concert 
the choir can look back with 
happy memories of their tour. 
The choir has been preparing 
diligently for this tour for many 
weeks and hopes to make it one 
of the best. Each member feels 
that there is reward for all • 
the hours in the satisfaction re- 
ceived from the completed tour. 

To close this year's tour the 
choir will sing at the Southern 
Christian Convention in Atlanta, 
Georgia, and the Volunteers will 
do special numbers there. 

The STAMPEDE staff and the 
student body extend best wishes 
to the choir for their 1961 tour!

Unuuuuteuiy, you have heard 
some taiK aooiu a proposed trip 
to rloriua and JNassau lor spring 
vacuon in la62. With each pass-

into concrete plans. 

A lour agency is working out 
an itinerary for a group of ap- 
proximately 120 persons, includ- 
ing cnaperones and a tour direc- 
tor, fiere are two items of in- 
terest that will be included: two 
days in it. Lauderdale, and two 
days in the beautiful, tropical 
British island of .Nassau, located 
off the coast of Honda. There, 
in the colorful capital of the Ba- 
lamas, the home of gay Calypso 
Tiusic, quaint shops and open- 
lir straw markets await you. 
lriere you can visit the world- 
lamed Paradise Beach, or take

The biggest item is yet to be 
liscussed. The cost of the trip. 
\t the present time, the agent 
estimates the price, which will 
nclude all transportation, lodg- 
ng, meals, and planned tours, at 
;95.00. Considering the quality 
>f the tour, the price indicated is, 
o quote "Mad," "cheap." 

Plans are being made for 
'arious fund-raising projects to 
lefray the initial cost of the 
rip. As Confusius say, "Wise 
tudent save money during stun- 
ner, to play in spring." Reserva- 
ions will not be accepted until

imple time to approach your

between tne innocence of bob- 
by sox and tne sopmstication of 
minK lies a curious, carefree crea- 
ture called a coed. 

Coeas come equipped with as- 
sorted peaal pusners and hair- 
dos, but tney ail upnold the same 
creed: to enjoy every minute oi 
every hour of every college day. 

Teachers fluster them, mothers 
protect them, little sisters idolize

places; lounging on, draping 
around, leaning against, bustling 
to, and traipsing from. She is 
pride with a pony tail, non- 
cnaiance with a notebook, optim- 
ism with an overcoat, and the 
prettiest of womanhood in wool. 

A coed is a curious mixture. 
She has eatmg habits of a ca- 
nary, and displays the energy of 
a mountain trout. To her ad- 
mirers she has the mind of Ein- 
stein, the looks of Kim, the per- 
sonality of Grace, and the figure 
of Marilyn. To the other coeds, 
she has the form of a pop bot-

mackeral, and the mind of a 

The coed loves weekends, cash- 
mere sweaters, red convertibles, 
and men. 

The coed is here to stay, with 
all her curiosities. She may re- 
main a bobby soxer or attain the 
dignity of mink, but in between 
she is still that curious phenome- 
non ... a "coed." 



Recently this roving reporter 
asked several stuaents on the 
campus that each would do if 
they were given a foumart as a

tor. Tappa first came to Milli- 
gan in septemDer of ly58. Over 
a period of three years he has 
worked with the choir, ensem-

taught vocal music at the col- 
lege, and provided all interested 
music in its true beauty. All this 
is in addition to his classroom 
subjects and his regular choir 

Mr. Tappa so many times pro-

cultural development at Milli-

in music. His work here at the 
college has continued to keep the 
Milligan program before the 
people of the area and in the

the musical programs which are 
presented there. 

The Tappas have one daugh-

WITH THE COMING OF SPRING, coaches, team members, 
and other students enjoy the various sports — tennis, baseball, 
and track. 


Tennis Is Near 

"Doc" Thompson has started 
his net men on their grinding 
pre-season practice. Whenever 
there is good weather, you will 
see "Doc" giving out the pertinent 
information to his understudies. 
This year finds the Buffs with 
five returning lettermen. These 
are Lowell Wiilliams, David Wil- 
liiams, Jim Lura, Jim Marshall, 
and John Wiggins. Out of these 
lettermen the leading percentage 
players from last year are re- 
turning, Lowell Williams and 
David Williams, with identical 
records of 12 and 3. 

Last year's team supported a 
14 and 4 record, which was one 
of the better ones in recent years. 
This year a lot will be expected 
from the Buff netmen, and there 
are high hopes that they can 
win the eastern section of the 
V.S.A.C. Last years team was 
runner-up to the Carson-New- 
man team. 


Well, spring is here and with 
it comes the expectation of an- 
other fine athletic season. All 
three major sports seem to be 
in pretty good shape. 

Most of the speculating fans in 
the stands are guessing that the 
baseball team should be the most 
improved of all. Let's face it, 
looking back over the past few 
season's records, it's plain to see 
that there is only one direction 
at all possible to go, in the 
standings and that is up. 

Of course, the ball field is still 
a little "damp," so consequently 
the tennis team is appropriating 
funds to purchase a bomb shelter 
and a rookie outfielder to patrol 
the courts. The temporary ball 
field has a real major league ap- 
pearance with its "terraced" out- 

field. The only trouble is that the 
infield is too, so this year's team 
will play all of its home games 
at the "Veterans Home" field in 
Johnson City as the permanent 
field will not be ready in time. 

The track team has been lim- 
bering up by jogging around the 
"Milligan Mile," in great form 
for the "Lumbering Herd." We've 
heard reports that there are 
mighty spear-throwing exhibi- 
tions by some of the more ener- 
getic tribesmen. The thinclads 
will hold their meets down on 
the field if possible, but if not, 
they will be run at the Memorial 
Stadium in Johnson City. 

The tennis team has been 
hampered greatly by the turbu- 
lent weather, but should be in 
good shape for the season which 
opens in a short time. 

Wrestling Added To Milligan Athletic Program 

For a little over a month now 
there have been wrestling classes 
here at Milligan. The instructors 
for these classes are Dr. Orvel 
Crowder and senior, Ok Jin Yoo, 
and they meeton Tuesdays, 
Thursdays, and Fridays. 

The hope for the near future 
is to have some exhibition 
matches which will be either free 
or cost only a small fee to at- 
tend. If enough progress is made 
by the end of this year, it is 
hoped that a match can be sched- 
uled with some other school. 

Men's Intraniurals

rooms and roommates. The exact 
time will be announced. 

The second date to remember 
is for the pre-registration for 
this year's session of summer 
school, which will also be held 
during the first week in May. 

These dates are not far off, so 
keep them in mind, if they con- 
cern you. 

As this paper went to press, 
all dormitory space was filled 
if the underclassmen here now 
were all to return. This is the 
reason for the necessity of early 
room reservations.

Editorial . 


The annual campus elections are over, and our leaders for the 
lext school year are known. Everyone had a chance to cast his bal- 
ot and the choice has been made by the student body. It is im- 
jortant and necessary that we have good and capable leaders. No 
.tudent body can be governed without them. Of course we all want 
,o feel as though we are a leader of something, be it club, committee, 
>r other group. This is nothing unnatural or nothing of which to be 
ishamed. But what would this world be if everyone made his own 
lecisions and followed the advice of no one else? And this is what 
vould happen if everyone considered himself to be THE leader. Our 
lation, state, school, club, or committee would each fall under these 
rircumstances. There must be only one or a certain group to lead 
md maintain the effectiveness within an organization. 

Yes, every group must have its leaders, but most of all it must 
iave a loyal and cooperative group of followers to carry on the work 
>f the entire body. 

To be a good leader is difficult, but to be a good and faithful 
ollower and a competent worker backing that leader is even more 
lifficult. This is an obligation of every student on this campus — to 
jack those whom we have elected at all times in the coming year, 
;o that our student government may make greater progress than it 
las made before. Let's each do our jobs, whether they be as a leader 
>r as a follower and success will surely follow for the student gov- 
•rnment on this campus!

in front of Webb Hall. It was a 
beautiful hit-solid off the bat, the 
ball sailed up, up into the 
air, and found its course in the 
front window of the trailor of 
Jim and Mary Jane Neff. Better 
luck next time, boys!

contest last Saturday night in

The sun tan race for this year 
has finally begun. Last Saturday 
produced many very red females 
— red from the sun, that is. Out 
in front in the race thus far are 
Lottie Hedge, Janie Aman, Win- 
nie Smith, and Reba Sue Carroll, 
with many others close behind. 

A carnival held recently in 
Johnson City provided entertain- 
ment for many, but was expen- 
sive for a few unfortunate ones! 
An announcement has been made 
that another carnival will be held 
in Erwin. — A word to the wise 
is sufficient! 

It seems that one of our stu- 
dents traveling to Ohio received 
a needed rest for his head from 
a traveling companion's boney 
shoulders, thus adding to the 
novelty of the trip, eh Ray? 

Dr. R. M. Bell Presents 
Welshimer Lectures 

After the passing of their fa- 
ther, P. H. Welshimer, in 1956, 
Mildred and Ralph Welshimer 
decided to dedicate a series of 
annual lectures to one of the 
greatest preachers of our time. 
They accomplished this by donat- 
ing yearly one hundred dollars 
to be given to the outstanding 
speaker who would come that 
spring to share with us his ex- 
cellent and stirring message from 
the gospel. 

The first Welshimer lecture 
series took place in the spring 
of 1958 when W. R. Walker, that 
beloved giant in the Christian 
brotherhood, inspired Milligan 
College with his delivery from 
God's revelations. In 1959 we 
were privileged to hear the re- 
nowned pastor of the Broadway 
Christian Church of Lexington, 
Kentucky, Ard Hoven, present a 
powerful and stimulating set of 
talks from God's word. In 1960 
there was no Welshimer lecture 

On April 6 and 7, Milligan was 
again honored to hear one of the 
fine speakers for this series. 
President R. M. Bell of Johnson 
Bible College, a long time col- 
league and friend of the late Dr. 
Welshimer, spoke to the audi-

Program for study at the Rad- 
cliffe College Graduate School. 
The award is a fellowship of $2,- 
200 a year for study leading to

English. According to a letter 
from the dean of the college to 
Joanne, "It is understood that if 
you continue for the Doctor of 
Philosophy degree, the fellow- 
ship will be renewed." 

Phyllis Laws has received a 
scholarship from the University 
of Tennessee. This is an assistant- 
ship scholarship which will lead 
to a master's degree in Health 
and Physical Education. The 
scholarship is for a period of 12 

Richard Hayes has also re- 
ceived a scholarship for his grad- 
uate study. The Harvard School

May Day Approaches 

The plans are in the making 
for this year's annual May Day 
festivities. The date has been set 
for Saturday, May 13, at 3 p. m. 
Mr. Hudson has been chosen as 
the faculty advisor, and he has 
selected seniors, Phil Pletcher 
and Martha Sue Orr, as co-chair- 
men. The other committee chair- 
men are May Dance and Court, 
Lynn Fowler; Choreography, Syl- 
via Lumsden and Annis Thomp- 
son; music, Louise Garlich; pub- 
licity and programs, Anita Hiner; 
costuming, Mary Johnson; and 
jjund and wiring, J. D. Smith and 
Charles Fulks. 

The planning committee of 
these chairmen has met twice in 
recent weeks with many more 
meetings planned. Production 
practice, May Court practice, and 
choreography are scheduled to 
begin soon. The theme will not 
be revealed until a later date. 
From all indications of enthus- 
iasm and ideas, if given good 
support and cooperation by all 
who are asked, these people will 
certainly provide a May Day 
long to be remembered by all.

of the Macedonia Church. 

Pat Matthews . . . rich and 
famous from bribe money for de- 
stroying incriminating pictures. 

Ann Bryant . . . queen of (you 
may have a lot of competition,

Joanne ana Dick . . . never a

Shelbuine Ferguson . . . for his 
no-burn nose guard. 

Janet Knowles . . . for her great 

J. D. bmith . . . who coined a 
new phrase, "I didn't know, I 
thought you were kidding." 

Jerry Carroll . . . "Zelda." 

Mary Johnson . . . for bowling

The Volunteers . . . for bologna 
sandwiches and forty cents a day 

Special performances . . . the 
choir at the shopping center . . . 
the mixed quartet plus one (Miss 
Welshimer) on the yacht . . . the 
duet around the swimming pool

Fashion Fads 

Have you selected your spring 
fashions yet, or are you too wait- 
ing for East Tennessee to have 
a bit of wanner weather? Re- 
gardless, perhaps we can give 
you a few suggestions. 

Those favorite spring colors 
for the ladies are embodied in 
your delicate pastels. Lavender 
and lilac is going to be the big 
thing with the soft colors of 
peach, apricot, and coral, and hot 
pink following closely. 

Several shirtwaist dresses are 
a must. These full-skirted frocks 
with their button-down collars 
or lacy bodices and tiny tucks 
will be a hit in any circle. Lace 
seems to be quite the thing and 
those lovely lace-frilled blouses 
are surely a sign of ladyhood. 

Perhaps your most stylish 
piece of clothing will be found 
in the pleated skirts. Again the 
pastels are popular, but nothing 
can top the plaids or matching 
coordinates. Your white-pleated 
skirts are in and with these short 
hemlines that are ever so stylish, 
a few alterations will probably 
have to be made. 

The latest word in hair styles 
(from Seventeen) starts with 
bangs. If you really want that 
college look, swing those bangs 
wickedly down to your eyebrows. 
The matching hair style can be 
long, short, sleek, soft, or saucy. 

The real sign of a Betty Coed 
or Joe College is displayed in 
America's number one use of 
canvas . . . tennis shoes. Maybe 
you go for just plain white but 
those plaids are really sharp! 

Fellows, don't feel left out! We 
remember you, too. Every col- 
lege man needs a Madris plaid 
sport coat and something with 
olive green in it. For those light- 
weight suits, a dark-striped nar- 
row tie is the most. For every- 
day wear, cord pants and dark 
plaids are quite smart, especially 
if your spring shirts are modeled 
after the threequarter length 
sleeves made famous by the 
Kingston Trio. 

If you need further help on 
selecting your new clothes, con- 
sult the store windows, fashion 
magazines, and sportswear de- 
partments, for they are over- 
flowing with new ideas!

Spring (?) has again brought 
le of the most popular sports — 
iris softball. The male specta- 
ors lining the softball field get 
; much, if not more, enjoyment 
at of the action as the girls 
lemselves do. 

A total of 70 girls are partici- 
ating in softball this year. Pro- 
iding "Mr. Weatherman" begins 
> co-operate, the seven teams 
■ill finish the round robin tour- 
nament just before finals. 

Tomorrow afternoon the Intra- 
lural Council is sponsoring a 
lay Day, the second one of this 
ear. Sports included in this aft- 
rnoon of activity are shuffle- 
oard and badminton for girls, 
nd horseshoes and badminton 
>r the men. These tournaments 
te all scheduled to begin at 
:00. In addition a swimming 
leet for both the men and wom- 
a will be held at 3:00. 

We are hoping that we will 
ave a great many taking part 
1 these activities. Spectators are 

so welcome.

spotlight this month. 


ftlligan Netmen 
Lemain Undefeated 

After having had four matches 
; the time of this writing, the 
imnis team stands undefeated, 
[illigan topped State 6-3, Ten- 
essee Wesleyan, 8-1, Maryville, 
B and was ahead of Carson- 
ewman, 4-3 when the match had 
:') be called because of darkness. 
Homer Neal and Don Mc- 
.onkey, who play 5 and 6, re- 
pectively, are undefeated thus 
ir in their singles play. The dou- 
les seem to be the strong point 
£ the team, as they are all un- 
efeated also. Number 1 doubles 
Dnsist of Lowell Williams and 
ohn Wiggins, number 2 are Jim 
larshall and Homer Neal, and 
laying number 3 doubles are 
lave Williams and Don Mc- 

This year's team seems to be 
ne of the best in a long time, 
'he netmen are certainly off to 

good start and we wish them 
rck on the remainder of the sea- 

The season is wearing on and 
every sport has been hampered 
by the foul weather this year. 

This seems to be the indirect 
reason why the baseball team 
isn't fairing up to some of the 
wild pre-season expectations. 
When the wet grounds keep them 
from practiciing, valuable ex- 
perience is lost for this heavily 
freshman team. This leads to 
games like the first Carson-New- 
man game in which the Buffs 
made a half dozen errors to seal 
their doom. It must be noted, 
however, that the herd has al- 
ready won more games this year 
than in the past three or four 
seasons, so there is a definite 
amount of improvement. 
The tennis team, as of press 

time, is undefeated and has fine 
depth down through even the B 
team. (Note: This is through the 
Maryville match). 

We thinclads, as of press time, 
have not been so fortunate as all 
meets scheduled have been post- 
poned due to rain. As you read 
this the Furman meet will have 
been run. The fellows are getting 
a little restless for some action. 

Due to the condition of the 
track and baseball field, the fans 
will not have as much or easy an 
opportunity to see these two 
teams in action as the track team 
is running at the Johnson City 
High School field and the base- 
ballers are playing at the Vet- 
erans Home field, also in Johnson 

The tennis team went down 
to their first defeat at the 
hands of Appalachian, 6-3. 

Relay Team Places 
At Furman 

Last Saturday, March 15, the 
track team journeyed to the Fur- 
man Relays in South Carolina. 
Sixteen members of the team 
went, and this is the first meet 
in which the fellows have par- 
ticipated yet this year due to 
bad weather. 

The Milligan relay team, con- 
sisting of Earl Hobson, Don Alex- 
ander, Dan Lee, and Steve Hill, 
placed third in its division. Each 
boy received a small trophy for 
this achievement. Gary Nicholson 
tied with four others for third 
place in the high jump. 

Florida State finished first and 
Furman placed second for the 

Baseball Team 
Wins Three 

The baseball team began the 
season with a four-day trip to 
Pembroke, North Carolina, where 
they played two games with 
Pembroke College and one with 
Presbyterian. Both games were 
lost to Pembroke, although Hack 
Hyder hit two home runs. Paul 
Hall pitched the winning game 
against Presbyterian, 4-3. 

After a lose to Tusculum, 6-1, 
the team evened the season's rec- 
ord with a double win over Lees- 
McRae, 13-1 and 7-4. Phil Web- 
ster and Bob Warren were the 
winning pitchers. At Jefferson 
City the team out hit Carson- 
Newman, but lost the game, 11-5. 

Men's Intramurals 

By BOB and DAVE 
Intramural Bowling 

The Men's Intramural Bowling 
Tournament just completed was 
very successful. There was a to- 
tal of 30 participating who took 
part in the tournament and a lot 
of competition between the boys 
for the winning spot. Don Mc- 
Conkey won the tournament as 
he successfully defeated five op- 
ponents for the title. Don bowled 
high scores in each game and be- 
came the new intramural bowling 
champion as Larry Spangler, last 
year's winner, did not defend his 
title. Second place went to Lee 
Trout who was defeated by Mc- 
Conkey in the finals. Keith Jones 
won out over Joel Stormont for 
third place in the tournament. 

Men's Intramural volleyball 
will begin soon. The teams have 
been selected and lists of the 
teams have been posted on bul- 
letin boards around campus. 
Times for the volleyball games to 
be played will be posted so you 
will know when your team plays. 
Men's All-Stars 

An all-star team selected by 
the boys who participated in this 
year's intramural basketball pro- 
gram has been picked. This team 
consists of: Gary Johns, Darrell 
Hiatt, John Wiggins, Bud Sokol, 
Charles Golding, Roy Reid, Dan 
Lee, Dave Herndon, Phil Storey 
and Dan McClain. These boys 
will probably play the girls' all- 
-star basketball team in an all- 
star game later in the year. The 
annual all-star game is well re- 
ceived by the students and of- 
fers lots of entertainment for the 

Watch for announcements con- 
cerning the Intramural Playday 
which is being planned for April 
22 or May 6. Activities such as 
badminton, horseshoes, and swim- 
ming will be included in the 

With all of the away-games 
at the beginning of the schedule, 
last Saturday found the team at 
Athens playing Tennessee Wes- 
leyn. With the exception of a 
disastrous third inning, the Buffs 
played a great game. In this 
inning Wesleyn scored eight runs, 
and won, 8-t>. 

This left the record at 3-5. but 
with prospects of better weather 
and more home games in the fu- 
ture, the prospects are bright.

Bill Walters Wins 
Honor With Drama 

The Southern Literary Festival 
for this year of '61 was held on 
April 20-22 on the campus of 
Belmont College in Nashville, 
Tenn. For Milligan, one of the 27 
participating colleges and uni- 
versities, this was the first year 
in the Festival; and it was a 
double honor when Bill Walters, 
a freshman, took second place in 
the drama section for his play, 

The Festival, which began 
Thursday night with a concert, 
was full of many interesting 
events, such as forums, lectures, 
slides of Greece, an awards ban- 
quet and a production of J. B. 
by Archibald McLeish. Presided 
over by Mrs. Ivar Lou Duncan of 
Belmont, the program was in- 
formative and well planned. As 
guests the Festival featured such 
literary personages as John 
Crowe Ransom and Donald 
Davidson who interpreted poetry, 
an English scholar and lecturer 
from Connecticut named Dorothy

Choir To Present

Tonight, at 8 p. m. in the audi- 
torium, the Milligan College

the realm of a serious art. 

The choir will present concert 
excerpts from the opera "Porgy 
and Bess," with Professor Tappa 
directing from the piano. Fea- 
tured soloists include Claire 
Spotts, Dave Steucher, Jerry Car- 
roll, J. D. Smith, Roy Reid, Bob 
Ewbanks, and Sharon May. Phil 
Pletcher will narrate the story. 

After a brief intermission, 
Professor Dale Hudson will play 
the "Rhapsody in Blue" with 
Claire Spotts playing the second 
piano part. 

This concert is open to every- 
one free of charge. 


Dean Oakes announces that 
dormitories are almost filled. 
If you know someone coming 
with whom you wish to room, 
notify the dean now. 

BE AT 2:30 P. M. 

May is a beautiful month. The 
flowers have blossomed into 
radiance, trees are green and the 
sun is warm, and as is the cus- 
tom with Milligan and the month 
of May, comes May Day, the 
most colorful and beautiful pro- 
gram presented by us, the stu- 

This year's program has both 
title and theme . . . "Strolling 
Through the Park" is the title 
and "Through the Years" is the 
theme. The gala festivities will 
begin this afternoon on the lawn 
in front of Hardin at 2:30 p. m. 

Sheila Ottinger and Ray Rensi 
will reign over the activities as 
queen and king of May. Sheila 
is from Indianapolis, Ind., and 
Ray hails from Hopedale, Ohio. 
Serving on the court of May Day 
are: Bonnie Wiley and Dave 
Roberts, freshmen representa- 
tives; Judy Smith and Marshall 
Hayden, sophomore class; from 
the Junior Class the two couples 
chosen were Nancy Sahli, Ron 
Dove, Joy Fisher and Terry 
Black. Chosen from the Senior 
Class were Nedra Morgan, Eddie 
Fine, Joanne Hines, and John 

The program is revolved around 
a married couple, portrayed by 
Kyle Wallace and Janie Aman, 
"Strolling Through the Park, 
Through the Years," and it is 
divided into four sections. We 
first find them young and ener- 
getic polka dancers in the war 
years of 1917. Then the rushing 
noises of the roaring 20's, with 
its Charleston, flapper dresses, 
and gangsters brings forth strange 
changes. On to the 1940's, char- 
acterized by the jitterbug and 
Andrews Sisters and still more 
changes. Of course no program 
would be complete without a 
look at modern times exemplified 
in . . . well, you name it.

It's Time To Evaluate 

The curtain is almost down on another school year, and 
it is time to evaluate what we have accomplished. 

It is necessary and good to take account of the experi- 
ences — to separate the chaff from the wheat — the unprofit- 
able from the profitable. By making this evaluation, we each 
can renew and change our goals for next year accordingly. 
Without such an evaluation we may merely make the same 
mistakes again. 

Although we may have failed in some cases, we must 
profit from our errors and do better. Where we have made 
significant accomplishments, we can pride ourselves and 
resolve to continue in the right ways. 

Of course, we cannot bring down that curtain on our 
studies yet, for an important two weeks are still ahead. Let 
each of us set out immediate goal as one of hard work and 
concentrated effort for our last classes and final exams, so 
that we will be able to say that our year has ended a suc-

Many Thanks . . . 

With just one more issue of the paper remaining to be 
printed, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each 
member of the STAMPEDE staff who has worked so co- 
operatively to put the paper "to bed" each month. It takes 
all of us working together, and all of you have filled the bill 
completely. Thank you. 


The delegates were particular- 
ly impressed with the breakfast 
which they were served while 
here consisting of country ham, 
grits, red-eye gravy and candied 
apples, a typically southern way 
to begin the day. 


The Milligan SNEA was repre- 
sented at the state convention in 
Murfreesboro by Nancy Sahli, 
Shelva Sickafoose, John Barkes, 
Tom Barkes, Earl Eidson, and 
Professor Montgomery. The con- 
vention was held on the campus 
if Middle Tennessee State Col- 
lege on April 28. 

The group attended a general 
session in the morning and then 
divided into discussion groups 
where all participated, learning 
ways to improve our chapter and 
made suggestions on ways to in- 
crease interest in the SNEA. 

In the afternoon a workshop 
was held for officers and one for 

sponsors, and the other repre- 
sentatives toured the MTSC 

The convention closed with a 
banquet that evening in the Stu- 
dent Union Building. There two 
chapters were recognized for be- 
ing reinstated into the SNEA. and 
Milligan was one of these. 

The SNEA here on campus has 
been an active group this year, 
and over 60 members of the stu- 
dent body have been paid mem- 
bers, litis proved to be a large 
percentage in comparison with 
many other schools which were 
represented at the convention.

the visit to their campus several 
weeks before. 

Many new ideas have been

May Day — A Long 
Time Tradition 

From reading back issues of 
the STAMPEDE and tracing back 
through the years, a guess will 
be hazard that May Day has 
been in existance nearly 30 years 
here at Milligan. Since the rec- 
ords are incomplete, we will look 
back at only the later years and 
the various May Day royalty and 

In 1948, our own Carolyn and 
Duard Walker were the king and 
queen of May, being "Roving 
Royalty" and visiting various sec- 
tions of the United States in 

Dave Brady and Alice Mc- 
Donald reigned over the festivi- 
ties in '55, and found a delightful 
program, "Over the Rainbow." 

The college's 75th year was 
portrayed through "Our Diamond 
Anniversary Album" in 1956, as 
Don Williams and Margaret 
Jane Smithson were crowned 
the king and queen. 

In 1957 "The Big Top" came 
to life with balloons, clowns, and 
all the trimmings. Duard Ald- 
ridge and Bertie Watson were 
the king and queen on that day. 

The king and queen of May in 
1958 were "Sonny" Smith and 
Roxann Henderson, and the en- 
tire program was an attempt to 
make the little prince laugh. A 
hail storm ended this day's pro- 
gram but, did nothing to dampen 
the gay spirits of May Day. 

Everyone attending in 1958 
went on a "Plantation Picnic" 
along with Jim Stidham and 
Barbara Tenney, the king and 

Last year the spotlight turned 
to Spain for "El Dia de Mayo" 
and saw new worlds conquered 
for that country. Eric Crites and 
Mildred Turner reigned over the 

So once again today we will 
add another chapter to the May 
Day tradition with this year's 
May Day, "Through the Years."

The two sports which are 
weeping the present sports cal- 
■ndar are softball and bowling. 

Captains of the softball teams 
ire: Jerry Mills, Gerry Mabe, 
^ranees Shipley, Bev Weller, 
Sally Gray, Janie Wallace, and 
oan Cunningham. 

The Milligan Lumpy Lanes are 
eeing much action these days, 
i record-breaking 35 girls signed 
ip for bowling this year. We 
iave new bowling balls and the 
■orrect number of pins in each 
tlley. Trie pins have had to be 
et in the gutter for a few girls, 
lust a minor change in the rules, 
iut its much better for them. 
they at least can knock a few 
own that way. 

Much enthusiasm has been 
jhown this year for all of the 
iris' intramural sports. This has 
leen increased by the work of 
he Intramural Council under 
pe direction of Coach Harold

pated than in any other year, 
baking more s ports offerable 
jnd competition keener.

Volleyball Tourney Begins 

Men's Intramural Volleyball 
Tournament began two weeks 
ago and will continue until a 
champion is crowned. The tour- 
nament, a single elimination af- 
fair, consists of four games being 
played each night that the tour- 
ney is being held. Much interest 
is being shown by the students 
in playing volleyball and the 
participation has been as good, 
if not better ,than in any other 
intramural activity. 
Awards Banquet 

Monday evening, May 8, the 
annual "Awards Banquet" was 
held and the Intramural awards 
were presented at this banquet. 
Those who had earned 1,000

Farewell Until Fall . . . 

Another school year is over, and we probably will 
oreathe a sigh of relief in many ways. There have been many 
times when all of us have wondered if we would ever eaten

Well, the season's about over 
and I think it's time to give a 
couple of lines to the boys who 
didn't make the headlines in the 
papers and had to be content to 
ride the bench most of the long 
season. Unless you have been in 
this position before, you do not 
know what a tremendous amount 
of guts and patience it takes to 
be considered second-best. As the 
old saying goes, "A man with a 

true love and desire for the sport 
would much rather play with a 
team that was a constant loser 
than ride the bench with a team 
that won the championship." So 
at this time I salute the scrubs! 

This year more than ever we 
are losing some fine senior ath- 
letes and we should all pay rec- 
ognition to their hard working 
efforts over the past four years. 
Among these are: Wig, Moose, 
Sweed, Olle, Round-man, Char- 
ley, Lew, and Naner. 

Thinclads End 
Successful Season 

The Buffs wound up the track 
season on the sour note with a 
lowly sixth place in the V.S.A.C. 
meet at Clarksville. The only 
bright spot for the Buffs was co- 
captain Don Alexander school- 
tying record of 43 'A in the shot 
put. Don remained undefeated in 
the shot for the second stragiht 

Other outstanding perform- 
ances were put on by point-lead- 
ing Jim Frasure, field events: 
Earl Hobson, javelin; Dick Howe, 
dashes; Jim Dial, dashes; Sidney 
Johnson, hurdles; Larry Size- 
more, hurdles; Gary Nicholason, 
field events; Andy Lowe, field 
events; Jerry Frasure, field 
events; Dave Herdon, distance; 
Ed Pierpont, distance; Steve Hill, 
middle distance; and Dan Lee in 
the middle distance. 

Since Don Alexander is the 
only letterman graduating this 
year, the Thinclads should be 
rough to handle next year.

Greer Tops Batters 
With .369 Average 

The Milligan Buffs ended their 
baseball season with one of the 
best, if not the best record, in 
the past decade. Even though the 
Buffs never got above the five- 
hundred mark, it was still a suc- 
cessful season. Even though the 
pitchers had trouble with the 
cold weather, Coach Stout's boys 
were able to salvage six games 
out of their 16-game schedule. 

Paul Hall, Bob Warren, and 
Phil Webster each won two 
games with Hall giving the best 
single-game performance with a 
four-hit shutout over Tennessee 
Wesleyen. Hall had an earned- 
run average of 2.87, with Warren 
second with 3.97. Warren walked 
only three men during the sea- 
son and Hall struck out the most 
with a total of 34. 

The four leading batters were 
as follows: 

AB R H Avq. 

Greer .46 7 17 .369 

Butterworth _ 52 17 18 .346 

Dutton 62 13 21 .339 

Wright 65 10 21 .323 

Randy Wright stole 10 bases 
and Sanford Dutton led in the 
RBI department with 13. 

Considering the team had many 
freshmen on it and only the gym 
to practice in, our hats should be 
off to Coach Stout and his 1961 
edition of baseball Buffs. 



This year's girls' intramural 
program has been very active 
and very successful. Sports in- 
cluding: volleyball, tennis, horse- 
shoes, shuffleboard, ping pong, 
basketball, Softball, and bowling 
have been staged and more girls 
than in any other year have par- 

Much thanks goes to the mem- 
bers of the intramural council 
who directed the various sports, 
and to Coach Harold Stout who 
supervised the entire program. 
Next year we are looking for- 
ward to even greater things. 

At the awards banquet the fol- 
lowing girls received intramural

M. C. Welcomes 
New Faculty 

For the benefit of those stu- 
ents who were afraid to sign up 
or any new "Profs" who hadn't

Mrs. Dorothy Wilson is not a

,as taught art courses at Milligan 
n the past. She is married to 
)r. Shelburne Wilson, who is 
hief of the Medical Service at

purses at Milligan. She has

The Inside Story 

The P. H. Welshimer Memorial 
Library is now partly open for 
student use. 

To be sure of where you are, 
and where you can find material, 

Emmanuel School Of 
Religion Founded 

The Emmanuel School of Re- 
ligion, a professional school for 
the training of ministers beyond 
the bachelor's degree, was or- 
ganized on the Milligan Campus. 
The organization of the new 
school came through the interest 
of a group of interested persons 
and churches throughout the 
United States. The school, al- 
though it will have no organic 
relationship to Milligan College, 
will share classrooms, library, 
and other campus facilities. The 
(Continued on Page Five) 

here is a private tour of the li- 
brary facilities. 

GROUND FLOOR: The audio- 
visual room is equipped with 
stage, screen, and blacking 
shades, four microfilm readers, 
and two micro-card readers. 
There are two listening rooms for 
music appreciation classes and 
one record library room. The 
language laboratory will be 
equipped with 30 stations, but is 
not yet finished. Each floor ha 
two soundproof booths to the

Cheer Up! 

. . . 539 other people feel the 
same way. Official enrollment 
has reached a peak 540 as an- 
nounced by the Registrar's Of- 

Yes, it's mass invasion, but the 
invaders are perfectly charming, 
and the whole ordeal is virtually 
painless. TWIRP WEEK is the 
password, and we mean The 
Woman Is Required to Pay. Now 
it begins to sound promising. It 
all takes place on a South Sea 
Holiday, with everything from 
grass skirts to bushbeaters. 

To keep a reasonable amount 
of order to the whole disorderly 
week, a few necessary rules have 
been drawn. 

1. Provide transportation for 
your dates, if possible. 

2. Help your date with his coat, 
open doors for him, follow him 
through the doors, walk on the 
outside of the sidewalk, and all 
other courtesies of this type. 

3. Call for your date at the 
dorm, and walk him back to the 
dorm. Please girls, observe all 
curfews of the week nights and 
Saturday night. 

4. It is required of all girls to 
have at least one Twirp date each 
day. Don't be alarmed! "Dates" 
include: (a) asking a boy to eat 
any meal with you, (remember, 
he must go ahead of you in line), 
(b) asking a boy to allow you 
to escort him to class, (be sure 
to carry his books), (c) asking a 
boy for a SUB date, (d) asking a 
boy for a date off campus. 

5. All girls are required to make 
all the advances, with the boy 
limited to countermaneuvers. 

6. All girls are expected to 
pay for any cost incurred on the 
dates, including transportation, 
movies, refreshments, etc. 

7. All violations of the rules 
of TWIRP WEEK will be sub- 
ject to the daily court. 

REMEMBER: All dates made 
prior to Chapel on Monday, Oc- 
tober 16. are null and void.

1. Don't attend meetings, but if you do, arrive late. 

2. Be sure to leave before the meeting is closed. You may be 
at the end of the supper line. 

3. Never have anything to say at the meetings — wait till you 
get to your dorm. 

4. When at the meeting, vote to do everything, then do noth- 

5. The next day, find fault with the officers and other mem- 
bers. This keeps people on their toes. 

6. Take no part in the organization's affairs. 

7. Be sure to sit in the back, so you can sleep without disturb- 
ing others. 

8. Get all the organization will give you, but don't give the or- 
ganization anything. 

9. Never ask anyone to join the organization. 

10. At every opportunity, threaten to resign. 

11. If asked to help, say you don't have time. 

12. Never read anything pertaining to the organization. It will 
make you prejudiced. 

13. Never accept a class office — it's easier to criticize than to 
do things. 

14. If appointed to a committee, never give any service to it. 
They might meet during supper. 

15. If you receive a bill for dues, ignore it. You'll be going to 
the Laundromat.

willingly and unselfishly use their ability to help the good

ments of her suitemate. 

Gary Johns and Rusty Stevens 
got kind of "carried away" with 
their joy-riding last week. Seems 
as though they enjoyed it so 
much that they are going to try 
again next weekend. Better luck 
this time, fellows! 

It seems as though the Logic 
and Interpretation class has been 
having quite heated arguments 
(or are they discussions?) lately. 
In spite of the topic for discus- 
sion, it inevitably ends up with 
"boys against girls," which makes 
it even more interesting! 

John Magill has unanimously 
been chosen as chairman of the 
Feed the Fish Committee, other- 
wise known as The Society for 
the Prevention of Hungry Fish. 
Saturday afternoon John and his 
committee (Judy Rinnert. Bon- 
nie Allee, Alice Davis, and Nancy 
Webster) could be seen at the 
upped fishpond feeding bread 
crumbs to their scaley friends. 
We suppose John's senior project 
suggestion of a lounge was so he 
could have a place to "lie around" 
after his daily feedings. 

Rook fever has hit again! The 
Sub, Sutton and Pardee lobbies, 
and various rooms in all the 
dorms are scenes for participa- 
tion in this "intellectual" card 
game. The day students in par- 
ticular use this as a time-killer. 
Guess we'll have to admit — it's 
more fun than studying! 


Attention girls in Sutton Hall! 
Don't panic when you see Mary 
Alice Randle in the hall. Those 
blue "things" on her feet won't 
bite you — they're really just 
houseslippers and are compli- 

Last week's M-Club initiation 
turned out to be far from en- 
joyable for Homer Neal, Don 
McConkey, Larry Sizemore, Jim 
Dial, Gary Nicholson, and Sam 
Castle. The boys didn't seem to 
to take their all-night hike 
as an amusement! Wonder if the 
"1/, of the Big 12" will be taking 
the same hike?! 

We're glad to see that Maria 
Bible, Barb Sargeant, and Reba 
Carroll are getting a lot of study- 
ing done this week. 





It's a striking new year on 
campus — away with the flat- 
footed Kookie, in with smooth- 
ness and couthness. 

The colors that are "in" this 
year are crisp and tangy, but 
not loud. Brick red, ivy blue, and 
a paprika-flavored red will be 
popular. You might want to wear 
these colors together; brick-red 
sweater, ivy-blue skirt; or mix 
them with Paisley and plaids. 
Gray and camel are again fash- 

Sweaters are long and shaggy. 
If you have a lot to invest, check 
your tweeds, V-necked pullovers 
of mohair, and ribbon-bound 
Shetland cardigans. 

Skirts are, of course, much 
shorter than usual and they all 
are swinging — flared, or multi- 
pleated. From GLAMOUR, I 
read that the straight skirts are 
out this year. 

Perhaps the greatest change in 
dress this year will be in shoes. 
It looks as though the pointed 
toe shoes will be replaced. The 
square toe, stacked heel will be 
dominating shoe fashion this 
year. The ever-popular loafer in 
patent leather will also be a mark 
of fashion. 

Just a few scattered reminders 
— the carry-all type purse is still 
going strong, hair styles are short 
and "bubbley," and the belted 
look will be a favorite.

While everyone was still un- 
packing and getting acquainted 
with their roommates, 220 Fresh- 
men were divided into teams and

dent Council Vice-President Mar- 
shall Hayden was in charge, as- 
sisted by Ron Dove and Nancy

Ison and Sally Gray, Mohawk; 
Larry Brandon and Billye Joyce

kee; Bill Nice and Marilyn 
Knapp, Navajo; Dave Eunson 
and Annas Thompson, Sioux; 
Darrell Hiatt and Pat Pickle- 
simer, Mohican. Judy Smith was 
in charge of all bookwork. Leon 
Hopson and Lessie Henry helped 
with special activities, while 
Student Council President Tom 
Barkes was general adviser. 

The tribes got their first taste 
of competition at the picnic re- 
lays with the Commanche coming 
out on top, and the Iroquois and 
Mohawk tribes tying for second 
place. It didn't take very long 

to see the athletes get into ac- 
tion. In the bowling alley, the 
Iroquois emerged victorious, 
Pawnee second, and Navajo 
third. On the tennis court, the 
Commanche, Mohawk, and Black- 
feet tribes came in one, two, 
three. In Cheek Gymnasium, the 
Blackfeet, Commanche, Chero- 
kee, and Navajo swept volley- 
ball, and the Mohican, Com- 
manche, Navajo, and Mohawk 
tribes were the basketball 

A very entertaining program 
was presented as a part of High 
Council, and convinced everyone 
that the Class of '65 was not lack- 
ing in talent. First place was 
awarded Susan Shields (Com- 
manche) for her violin solo, sec- 
ond place was given to Fred 
Kelly (Blackfeet) for a vocal 
solo, third place was an interpre- 
tation of "The Lord's Prayer" by 
the Sioux, and fourth place went 
to an instrumental combo from 
the Mohicans. Not only did this 
class have athletes and talent, 
but they also had a sense of 
humor as was discovered in Low 
Council. The best comedy skit 
was from the Apache tribe, with 

the Iroquois, Mohican, and Mo- 
hawk tying for second. Not to 
be outdone in ambition, the tribes 
went on rampage all over the 
campus. Here's where we found 
them: Apache cleaning the walks, 
Blackfeet cleaning the Upper 
Fish Pond and Ad. Building 
windows, Cherokee cleaning the 
walks and steps to Anglin Field, 
the Commanche reorganizing the 
Print Shop, Iroquois cleaning 
the creek, Mohawk cleaning the 
lower fishpond, Mohican sweep- 
ing the Presidential Steps, Nava- 
jo sweeping the tennis court, 
Pawnee cleaning the SUB, and 
Sioux working in thee audi- 

After all the work they did, 
it didn't seem fair to punish 
them, but it WAS fun. Holocaust 
arrived, and upperclassmen and 
tribesmen saw their victims in 
the muddiest chariot race ever, 
courtesy of the Apache and Paw- 
nee. Other punishments enjoyed 
were shoving ping-pong balls 
across the bridge with your nose, 
pushing eggs up a pepper line, 
and singing love songs in an icy 
creek. An exciting conclusion was 
the annual tug 'o war with the 
upperclassmen giving the Fresh- 
men a dunking. (There were 

quite a few damp upperclassmen, 

Here are the vital statistics as 
compiled by Judy Smith: 

2. Commanche — 17,315 points 

3. Pawnee — 17,100 points 

4. Mohawk — 15,305 points 

5. Blackfeet — 14,245 points 

6. Iroquois — 14,150 points 

7. Navajo — 13,756 points 

8. Sioux — 12,869 points 

9. Cherokee — 9,670 points 
10. Mohican — 9,413 points 

The greatest of the tribes in 
Wakandagi was the Apache 
tribe, wtih 17,877 points, led by 
Ron Dove and Nancy Sahli. 
First place laurels were pre- 
sented at an impressive Matric- 
ulation Service, with Duard 
Walker giving the special ad- 
dress. Congratulations go to the 
tribes and their leaders whose 
efforts made the 1961 Wakandagi 
such a success. 

Nothing irks the college stu- 
dent more than shaking out an 
envelope from home and finding 
nothing in it but news and love.

Men's Intramurals 

The men's intramural program 
started early this year without 
the usual round of football 
games, due to work being done 
on Anglin Field. So, the season 
began with tennis tournaments. 
A record number of 42 boys 
signed up for competition on the 
courts. Five boys held top posi- 
tions during play. They are Larry 
Johnson, John Starr, Bill Mor- 
rison, Terry Black and Randall 
Ervin. The 1961 intramural ten- 
nis champion, Bill Morrison, was 
determined Tuesday. 

A Round Robin Volleyball 
Tournament began August 24th. 
Three games have been played 
by each team thus far. As of 
now, team one holds first place 
with the three wins and no losses. 
Team six is close behind with 
a 2-0 record. Teams three and 
four have two wins and one 
loss to their credit. 

New intramural sport activities 
will be coming up soon, so keep 
a close watch on the bulletin 
boards in the Administration 
Building, Webb Hall and Cheek 


Although Milligan may lack a 
fall sport, they undoubtedly rank 
with the other colleges in ath- 
letic participation for this time 
of the year. Almost all of the 
major sports have begun in one 
way or another. 

Basketball is the major con- 
cern right now as a round-robin 
tournament has started. Out of 
approximately sixty-five boys on 
seven teams, only a few will be 
invited to try out for the varsity. 
With the returning lettermen and 
several promising new faces, 
Coach Walker's squad may have 
a fine chance of retaining their 
1960-61 S.M.A.C. championship. 

Coach Stout has already put 
the baseball equipment to use 
this year. Last year's players 
have indulged in a few intra- 
squad games and hopes for a 
winning season are high. With 
the aid of promising freshmen, 
this dream could very well come 

If you have tried to get on the 
tennis courts, you know that this 

sport appears to be in full swing. 
With the majority of returning

Track is still in the talking 
stage and the frosh are doing 
their usual good job of it. The 
upperclassmen calmly listen to 
their incredible tales of accom- 
plishment. Then they smile and 
say to themselves, "We'll see 
when the season roils around." 

The Buffaloes newest sport, 
wrestling, is coming on fast. Dr. 
Crowder expresses hope that in- 
tercollegiate matches will be in 
the near future. Intramural 
grappling is now under way and 
I suggest you see a few matches. 

Milligan does not offer ath- 
letic scholarships; therefore, all 
players on the team are there 
because they desire to be. This 
gives the team greater spirit, and 
the boys are playing their best 
even if they are not winning. So 
with this, I, along with the rest 
of the students, say. "GOOD 



A new column known as Col- 
legiate's Corner is being intro- 
duced in this issue. This will 
serve as a guide to the latest 
news in the world of entertain- 
ment and the arts. 

Drury, the novel that enjoyed 
rating as one of the best sellers 
for over 95 weeks, is now being 
made into a provocative movie 
by Director Otto Preminger. 

With all Hollywood at his 
command Preminger chose the 
cast as follows: President, Fran- 
chot Tone; Vice President, Lew 
Ayres; Majority Leader, Walter 
Pidgeon; Powerful Southern Sen- 
ator, Charles Laugh ton; Secre- 
tary of State — designate, Henry 

The sets are extremely realis- 
tic houses, funiture, rugs, and art 
objects. Top-name families and 
museums donated decor worth 
$250,000. Extras for the movie 

include actual members of the 
Washington society, current poli- 
ticians, and scores of eager re- 
porters and news photographers. 
This is a movie to keep in 
mind for it will soon be released 
and holds promise of entertain- 
ment as well as an insight to the 
political functionings of our Unit- 
ed States government. 

New record albums worth add- 
ing to your collection of favorites 
are "Moments to Remember" in 
which the Norman Luboff Choir 
sings 12 good ballads from the 
late Thirties and "Happy Times"! 
with Mitch Miller and the Gang 
singing 16 songs of every descrip- 
tion. (By the way, sheet lyrics 
are included so you can try out 
your luck at harmonizing).

to seven feet the better they like 
it. (Finn B. Eriksen).

From The Editor's Pen . . . 

Our well-founded distaste for cranks has . . . rather 
blurred our ability to tell a crank from a mere eccentric, 
or even an eccentric from an individual. On a very rough- 
and-ready basis we might define an eccentric as a man who 
is a law unto himself, and a crank as one who having de- 
termined what the law is, insists on laying it down to others. 
An eccentric puts ice cream on steak because he likes it; a 
crank does it with moral grandeur and denounces non- 

Such people are hardly conformists, but somehow the 
value of their non-conformity is pretty hard to dig out. If 
you've made it around the corners, the point is: Be different, 
by all means, but let's straighten out the reasons behind our 
departure from the herd. Mass man, they say, is on the in- 
crease. Conformity, standardization, and similarity are re- 
placing the great ideas of individualism. Put ice cream on 
your steak, read Jack Kerouac, write a term paper on 
Nietzsche's "Superman" — this is the most precious quality of 
man: his differentness from the mob.

Is it a centennial? Is it a beat-

House of David? Anyway, it 
seems that suddenly beards and

Seems as though Darlene De- 
bault has become quite the movie 
goer lately. She has worked up a 
fool-proof system for her steady 
attendance. If interested in her 
tactics, consult Dar about an ex- 
planation. We're sure she could 
do a better job of it than we — 
at least it will be funnier! 

Gail Jean has become an un- 
official helper for "Mr. Webster" 
with her new word. She uses it 
when playing Rook, and it's a 
combination of "shuffle" and 
"deal." What does she come up 
with? — "sheal." Try it yourself, 
it's much shorter! 

Two sure-fire ways of getting 
attention in the library are to 
use the electric pencil sharpener 
or get a drink of water! 

What's this we've been seeing 
lately? "Spook" has actually 
been spending quite a bit of time 
with a member of the opposite 
sex. After three years of "bache- 
lorhood" for Dave, both of them 
deserve to be congratulated! 

We hear that the boys on third 
floor right wing of Webb Hall 
have been having some real 
"bang-up" times lately. Take it 
easy, fellows, that dorm looks bet- 
ter with three sections than it 
would with only two! 

According to reliable sources, 
Barb Seef has become somewhat 
of a naturalist. Seems as though 
she just can't part with that rose 
Roger gave her, much to the dis- 
may of her roommate. You see, 
the rose has been decorating 

Have you heard about the new 
couple on campus? Hector Plym-

that Janie Stroup and Frances 
Shipley are soon expecting a lit- 
tle Volkswagen from the deal!

Milligan College will dedicate 
a $750,000 library building today 
at 1:30 p. m. The dedication serv- 
ice wiU take place in the college 
chapel. The library is named the 
P. H. Welshimer Memorial Li- 
brary in memory of the late Dr. 
P. H. Welshimer, one-time min- 
ister of the First Christian 
Church, Canton, Ohio. 

In a 56 year ministry dating 
from 1902 to 1957, Dr. Welshimer 
built the Canton church from a 
membership of 300 to more than 
7,000 to become the largest Chris- 
tian church in America. He was 
also superintendent of the world's 
largest Bible school. 

The library is the gift of the 
T. W. Phillips Jr. Charitable 
Trust Fund and the Phillips 
family of Butler, Pennsylvania. 

Dr. R. M. Bell, president of 
Johnson Bible College, Kimber- 
lin Heights, Tennessee, will de- 
liver the dedicatory address. 

The library is of Georgian 
architecture to blend with the 
other buildings on the campus. 
It is a large, three-story build- 
ing of brick and Indiana lime- 
stone construction, located in the 
center of the campus. 

The library has been designed 
to serve a potential student body 
of 750. It has an ultimate book 
capacity of 100,000 volumes.

Dear Miss Bliss . . . 



Rome (I. L. S.) 

Hellooo all you sweeties! 

Im just SO glad that your 
sweet little editor has let me 
write another column for the 
STUMP HEAD because I just 
have a bunch of letters that need 
to be answered again. My good- 
ness, it seems like your love prob- 
lems just get worse instead of 
better! But you keep writing to 
me and we'll soon have them all 
worked out, yess! 

Some of the letters this month 
were very confidential so I've 
included them to teach you that 
nothing is REALLY confidential 
in the Milligan family. Following 
are a few of the CHOICEST let- 
ters: The first one is a real 

Dear Miss Bliss, 
I read your manual on "Check- 
ing Diamonds to See if They're 
Real," and my ring checks out 
as 3-carrot Pepsi bottle. Does 
this mean "Honeykins" doesn't 
love me? 

Muchly anquished, 
Mary Alice 

Dear Mary Alice, 

Just because your ring's not 
a real diamond doesn't neces- 
sarily mean that "Honeykins" 
doesn't love you — after all, 
Pepsi IS for those who think 

Miss Bliss 

Here's another corker: 
Dear Miss Bliss, 

How can you tell someone you 
llove her if she won't let you 
laear her? I've felt this way for 

quite some time now, but every 
time I try to whisper sweet 
nothings in her ear, she puts 
cotton in them and claps her 
hands over them. People tell me 
I get a little loud when I'm ex- 
cited, but I've been TRYING to 
whisper. What can I do? 

Frantic Fred 

Dear Fred, 

My advice is to see if some- 
one will buy you a microphone 
so you can learn to get more vol- 
ume out of your lungs. Maybe 
you could practice by making 
announcements at meals. Ask 
the dean about it, he knows 
how to fix you up. 

Miss Bliss 
This last letter is one that I 
know you'll enjoy reading: I 
sure did. 

Dear Miss Bliss, 

What should I do? I've been 
going with the cutest, sweetest 
boy for about a month now, but 
I just don't know how to tell 
him that I would like to date 
other boys once in a while, too. 
Can you help me? 

Worried Worrell 

Dear Worried, 

You do have a problem; how- 
ever if he really IS cute and 
not tall and skinny, hold on 
to him: those kind are hard 
to get. 

Miss Bliss 

This is just all there's room 
for now, so bye-bye and I hope 
those cute little Founder's Daugh- 
ter candidates don't hog up all 
those HANDSOME Milligan boys. 
Love and kisses, 
Miss Clementine Bliss 


From the office of the dean, 
;ighteen people have been named 
o the Dean's List for second 
:emester, having all "A's" or 
iust one "B." They are Philip 
Davis, Barbara Doxen, Louise 
jarlichs, Judy Giles, Joanne 
4ines, Eugene Koo, Sylvia Lums- 
len, Rachel Cox, Kathleen Cope, 
leanette Mounts, Joyce Cobb, 
'Jancy Sahli, Jerry Frasure, Fred 
Morris, Ralph Wheeler, James 
Erasure, Ray Rensi, and Kyle 

Wallace. Students listed on the 
First Honor Roll with 3.75 to 
3.50 are: Karen Guion, Maxine 
Miller, Mary Johnson, Beverly 
Kleinjan, Diana Chiarky, Larry 
Spangler, Myrtle Heid, Joyce 
Smithson, Carol Fraley, Janet 
Knowles, Terry Black, Richard 
Hayes, Diana Hodges, Adam 
Korenczuk, Joy Fisher, Dale 
Jacobs, Martha Kay Goeller, and 
Winifred Haven. 107 Students 
have been named to the Second 
Honor Roll by attaining a point- 
hour ratio of 3.50 to 3.00. 

A best seller for this year has 
been MILA 18, by Leon Uris, 
Doubleday, $4.95. It is a majestic 
fictionalization of the extermina- 
tion of Warsaw's ghetto by the 
Nazis. It combines history, su- 
spense, and adventure in a 
worldly story for mature readers 
only. Knowing that they were 
destined to die, several hundred 
Jewish Freedom Fighters with- 
stood the attacks of prize Nazi 
troops in a forty-two day revolt. 
Memorable characters and sev- 
eral love stories make the mood 
of despair and horror somewhat 
more tolerable. The title comes 
from the address of the resistance 
headquarters. (Uris was the au- 
thor of the superb EXODUS.) 

A new record release that will 
be of interest to popular music 
lovers is Johnny's new album, 
"I'll Buy You a Star." He is 
backed by Nelson Riddle and his 
orchestra in producing twelve 
moving songs. 

Recently the Footlighters, the 
drama group on campus, present- 
ed a play to the student body. 
It was an experimental produc- 
tion as it varied from the usual 
modern play of three acts. With 
Jim Eckard directing, a morality 
play "The Passing of the Third 
Floor Back" was given in three 
sections, the prologue, the play, 
and the epilogue. 

The students participating in 
this play were Liz Ellis, Sandy 
McBain, Mary Johnson, Ann 
Bryant, Lana Lanier, Tom Bates, 
Carolyn Harriman, Ron Sturtz, 
Ray Henry, Jerry Carroll, Clyde 
Campbell, and Ron McSwain. 

An unusual love story, BRIDGE 
TO THE SUN, tells of an East- 
West marriage that survives ap- 
palling odds — deep rooted 
prejudice, family opposition, 
even East-West war. It is based 
on the best-selling autobiography 
of Gwendolyn Terasaki, a girl 
from Johnson City, Tennessee, 
who married a Japanese diplomat 
in Washington in the early 30's. 
When the Japanese attacked 
Pearl Harbor, she chose to go 
with her husband to Japan, 
where they lived under constant 
suspicion. Insight into the Japa- 
nese way of life — the role of 
their women, their religious ob- 

servances, their code of honor — 
adds much to the film. Carroll 
Baker and James Shigeta are 
both fine in difficult and sensi- 
tive roles. 

Children Visit 

The Service Seekers enjoyed a 
very fine program from the East 
Tennessee Christian Home on No- 
vember 14. There were about 25 
children from the home here. 
They presented a Thanksgiving 
skit and had special musical num- 
bers. With these children was 
Miss Betty Lathem, a worker at 
the home, who gave a short talk 
about the activities and functions 
of the East Tennessee Christian 

Commerce Club Meets 

For those of you who may be 
contemplating a career in the 
business world, the Commerce 
Club may be a source of infor- 
mation, inspiration, or just plain 
good ole fellowship. Our officers 
for this year are: Howard Hen- 
ning, President; Frank Harrison, 
Vice President; Barbara Brown, 
Secretary-Treasurer; and Carol 
Jean Fraley, Reporter. 

At the first meeting of the 
Commerce Club, the programs 
and activities of the club were 
presented and discussed. During 
the semester the club will be 
engaging in various activities 
that are sure to be of educational 
value and interest to all of our 
Business students. There will be 
films, prominent speakers from 
our area, and a tour to some 
area business establishment of 
mutual interest to our members. 

Dues for the club are 75c a 
semester. Our meetings are held 
the last Monday of each month 
at 7:30. We invite everyone who 
is interested to come and be with 

And here's one all you avid 
Rook players will appreciate: 
"Early to bed, early to rise is an 
indication that you don't know 
how to play Rook!"

Many of the rooms in the dorms 
have been decorated for the holi- 
day season. One of the most no- 
ticeable rooms is that of Dave 
Brandon and John Magill, which 
is the corner room of third floor, 
left wing of Webb Hall. The side 
toward the window certainly 
looks nice. Is the other side as 
gayly adorned, fellows? 

fant hair-do during the night. 

Wonder why Paul Hall, Charlie 
Golding, and Wiley Butterworth 
are never on campus over the 
week ends! 

Decorations haven't been limited 
to the inside of the rooms. You 
may notice that one room on 
2nd floor of Hardin Hall has a 
lovely red and white sign hang- 
ing outside their room. This one 
has no holiday greeting, however, 
for it merely says "STOP!" 

Through her associations with 
the "eligible eight," Marilyn 
Knapp has learned to look (par- 
ticularly in the back seat of cars) 
before she leaps! 

We hear that Diane Hubbard 
and Maria Bible's room in Par- 
dee gets quite chilly. What's the 
trouble, girls? Can't you put your 
window down? 

Wayne Herndon, Fran York, 
Dave Sergeant, Bob Karnes, and 
Wayne Oden have added swim- 
ming to their extra-curricular 
activities. It's even more fun 
when you have the whole pool 
to yourself, eh boys!? 

This past week has been per- 
fect for those who enjoy walk- 
ing in the rain. Ann Turner 
"took a walk" a few days ago 
and nearly caused Karen Ham- 
mond to commit hari-kari. Bet- 
ter watch those walks on the 
"sun deck," Ann! 


The annual semi-formal Christmas party will be present- 
ed tonight at 8:30 in Sutton Dining Hall, sponsored by the 
Student Council. "The Spirit of Christmas" has been chosen 
as the theme, with the program divided into two parts, one 
on the light side, the other of a more serious nature. Dave 
Roberts will serve as M.C., presenting such talent as the 
"Keynotes," the "Robinhoods," Fred Kelly, and a special 
Men's Ensemble. Added attractions will be off-campus talent, 
and rumor has it that Santa is due to appear. 

Decorations are in charge of Mike Hartung and Rachel 
Cox; Publicity, Don Daum and Donna Sahli; Refreshments, 
John Magill and Ellen Kitzmiller; Program, Dave Roberts 
and Frances Shipley; Invitations, Judy Smith and Pat Pickel-

wishes to thank all those who have been a part of the Christ-

Dear Miss Bliss . . . 

Baghdad (I.L.S.) 

Greetings to all you sweet lit- 
tle sugar canesl 

I'm writing this from very near 
the place of the original Christ- 
mas pageant, but I haven't yet 
been able to go see any of the 
historical places because I've 
been so swamped with cute little 
girls coming from all over the 
Near and Middle East wanting to 
send messages to "Mikey," "Kas- 
seim the Dream," and "Tony- 
kins." Even though I told them 
I couldn't send any direct mes- 
sages, they nearly mobbed me 
just to get me to write something 
to those boys. 

My, my, but the letters have 
really been pouring in since 
Flounder's Day; it seems most of 
you girls have been worrying 
about whether your sweeties will 
stay true over vacation. Well, I'd 
worry, too, if I were you, 'cause 
those Milligan boys are sure 
good-looking. Now here are the 

Dear Miss Bliss, 

I've really got a problem. Ever 
since my girl was elected Foun- 
der's Daughter, she's been parad- 
ing around humming the Miss 
America song and talking about 
getting ready to go to Atlantic 
City next year. It's getting so I 
can't even hold her hand without 
bowing first. What should I do? 
Tromped On, Tom Von 

Dear Tromped On, 

You surely do have a problem 
there, but it's not so hard to 
solve: just humor her. Marry her 
just as soon as you can and then 
build a house with a boardwalk 
in front of it. Oh yes, it might 
help, too, if you would try to 
get some recognition on campus, 
like getting elected to the Stu- 
dent Council. 

Miss Bliss 

Quite a few letters come in 
like this next one: 

Dear Miss Bliss: 

There's this girl that I've start- 
ed dating who is really great. 
She's happy all the time and 
makes me feel like playing a 
trumpet. BUT, I can't ask her 
to go steady 'cause my old Geor- 
gia mammy wouldn't like it. Can 
you give me some suggestions as 
to what to do? 

Shakin' Shepard 

Dear Shakin', 

Even though the girl may be 
merry, we've still got to be blunt 
about the whole thing and do 
what's right. To find out what's 
right just send me a stamped, 
self-addressed envelope c/o your 
editor enclosing five dollars 
(Yankee money), and I'll send 
you my latest booklet called "How 
to Break the News of a New 
Love without Letting Anyone 
Know What You're Doing" ac- 
companied by "How to Recup- 
erate Quickly When They Find 
out What You Were Telling 
Them." (Both of these are in the 
new condensed versions with 
pictures of half-dressed dinosaurs 
on the covers.) 

Miss Bliss 

This last letter is one which 
I think you'll take a special no- 

Dear Santa: 

I'm writing to tell you what I 
want: a big handsome Milligan 
man! Any of them will be fine — 
what more could a lonely little 
girl want for Christmas?

Girl's Intramurals 


Women's intramurals have 
been rolling at high speed these 
last few weeks with the ending 
of volleyball and a volleyball 
play day at State, December 2. 
Milligan's All - Star volleyball 
team looked good with their vic- 
tory over Virginia Intermont and 
gave a good showing against 

The Intramural Council, under 
the direction of Coach Stout, 
sponsored a play night, Novem- 
ber 30, with students taking part 
in ping pong, shuffle board and 
foul shooting. The foul shooting 
tournament was won by Bev Wel- 
ter with Gail Jean second and 
Sally Gray third. There were 
about 20 girls participating in this 
event. The ping pong tournament 
was won by Claudia Saylor with

There were 15 girls participating 
in this event.

Pat Picklesimer 

The announcement of this 
year's class beauties was made 
not long ago at the annual Valen- 
tine Party. Each class picked 
their winner from a field of three 
or four candidates. 

Miss Senior, Pat Picklesimer, 
is a social studies major from 
Springfield, Ohio, and plans to 
be an elementary teacher. Her 
campus activities include Chris- 
tian Service Club, S.N.E.A., and 
Student Council. 

Because of illness in her fam- 
ily, Sylvia Adams, this year's 
Miss Junior, dropped out of 
school at semesters and is now 
working in her home town of At- 
lanta, Georgia. She was active in 
Christian Service Club, Service 
Seekers, Intramurals, and Stu- 
dent Council. 

Sophomore class beauty, Maria 
Bible, is from Greeneville, Ten- 
nessee. She isn't yet sure about 
her major but is considering his- 
tory. She hopes to teach after 

Sylvia Adams 

graduation. Maria is a member 
of the Physical Education Club 
and Varsity Voices, and she par- 
ticipates in intramurals. 

Carole Ann Greene, voted as 
freshman class beauty, is a com- 
muting student from Johnson 
City, Tennessee. She isn't sure 
about what she will major in but 
is considering the profession of 
dental hygienist. Carole Ann is 
a member of the choir and was

Milligan Group Attends Convention 



APRIL 25-27 
Plan Now To Attend 

Sponsored by: 
Missionary Fellowship 


February 28-March 1 eleven 
supposed scholars from Milligan 
attended the Third Consultation 
on Internal Unity of the Chris- 
tian Churches held at the Wheel- 
ing Avenue Christian Church in 
Tulsa, Oklahoma. In order to ar- 
rive in time for the opening ses- 
sion it was necessary that we 
leave early the morning of the 
27th. Bob Harmon and Ken Kin- 
caid had left earlier in Ken's 
convertible so that they might 
have an easier and more colorful 
trip. Mr. Newton, with Terry 
Black, John Starr, and Dick 
True, left just about an hour af- 
ter our six o'clock departure and 
arrived equally behind us at Tul- 

Due to the fact that the big 
limousine ('54 Chevy) might need 
a good night's rest on the way to 


Tulsa, the six (Fred Norris, Dave 
Stuecher, Don Daum, Bill Mori- 
son, Len Smith, and Dabney the 
Devout) pooled their ignorance 
and after a great conference came 
to the decision that the first leg 
of the journey would end at Lit- 
tle Rock, Arkansas. Dr. Fife, who 
had attended a planning session 
for this consultation near Tulsa 
in October, had shown us the best 
route to take. However, Path- 
finder Morison, whose great- 
great-grandfather had followed 
the first cow from Johnson City 
to Little Rock, knew a superior 
route. Upon our arrival at Little 
Rock, we decided that this route 
was superior only for cows. 

Our only regret upon leaving 
Little Rock was that we were not 
able to see Central High School

Freshmen Sponsor 

A six-hole miniature golf 
course, a "favorite" professor 
dart game, the trampoline, and 
refreshments will head the list 
of attractions to be featured at 
the St. Patrick's Day carnival 
Saturday night. The affair is be- 
ing sponsored by the Freshmen 

The doors will open at 7:30 
and the price is 40c stag and 75c 
drag. All those who attend the 
carnival will be admitted to the 
Senior class movie with the price 
of admission. This week's film 
will be "Man in the Attic," a 
thrilling mystery. 

There's a lot of fun in store, 
so head down to Cheek Gym- 
nasium at 7:30 Saturday night 
and get in on the activity. 

It has been suggested that we 
take a vote on who has the fun- 
niest laugh on campus. Actually 
it would not be quite fair, be- 
cause Judy Rinnert, Margie 
Reed, and Howard Fahnestock 
(better known as "Hopper") 
would be way out in front.

maybe the fad will keep spread- 

Dr. Montgomery and his para-

to be one of the first couples

you are, the more crowded the 
lobby is. Besides that, the dough-

Another class that has become

Dear Miss Bliss . . . 


Buenes Aires (I.L.S.) — Hello 
all you dear little sweeties, yesss! 
I'm writing this from the real 
Deep South — South America, and 
I thought it was time I answered 
some of the stacks of mail I've 
been getting since your cute 
little Valentine Party, yesss! Act- 
ually it never ceases to amaze 
me how many love problems you 
dearies from Milligan College 
have; I just didn't think it was 
possible to have so many prob- 
lems with so few students. 

Well, I know you must be just 
dying to read some more of my 
good advice, so here are a few 
sample letters, yessss! 
Dear Miss Bliss, 
I've been dating this real 
sweet girl who thinks I'm the 
most, but I'm afraid we may have 
to break up. The reason is my 
crazy "dog" of a roommate. He 
thinks I ought to date someone 
a little smaller in stature — he 
thinks there won't be room for 
us in the new "pointed-toe" type 
houses. What do you think? Is 
there any future for a poor 
"sole" like me? 

Troubled muchly, 
Tom McAn 
Dear Troubled, 
Your roommate sounds like 
a real cat — why don't you 
call him "Tige"? The nerve of 
some "heels" really gets me! 
You have every right to date 
whomever you want, regard- 
less of how big she is! My ad- 
vice is to tell your roommate 
to go "bark". Buster. 

Miss C. Bliss 
Wasn't that advice tops? Yess! 
Now here's another: 
Dear Miss Bliss, 
I'm really frightened! The fel- 
low I'm going with just scares 
me to death. If he weren't so 
cute and didn't drive a green 

Buick with leprosy, I'm afraid I 
wouldn't even be able to date 
him. I can't tell if the cause for 
his being so frightful is that he's 
from Ohio or that he's a member 
of the Big Twelve minus four 
plus two. Anyway, what should 
I do? 

Exasperated Edna 
Dear Exasperated, 
Your problem is not at all 
unique. Many girls at Milli- 
gan appear to be scared by the 
fellows they dale. My advice 
in such a case is always to try 
to adjust to the problem and 
kind of make fun of it. Why 
don't you give him some cute 
little nickname like "Scarey" 
or "Spook" or something? 

Miss C. Bliss 
This last letter is a real corker: 
Dear Miss Bliss, 
I have a serious problem and 
need your help. The fellow I go 
with has a small car and he 
spends nearly all his time with it 
and almost ignores me. What can 
I do to make him pay more at- 
tention to me? 

Puzzled Potter. 
Dear Puzzled, 

My advice and expert help 
is to try to get him interested 
in something that you can do 
together. For instance, why 
don't you leach him some game 
or sport, like tennis? He prob- 
ably won't be any good at it, 
but it's a start anyway. 

Miss C. Bliss 
Well that's about all the space 
the STUMP HEAD will allow 
me — though I can't see why for 
what is more important to a col- 
lege student than love?! Yesss! 
Anyway, this is about all, so you 
dearies be good and keep your 
lipstick dry. Yesssss! 

Love and kisses, 
Clementine Bliss

Baseballs are once again pellet- 
ing the tennis courts here on 
the MC campus, causing much 
anxiety and slandering comments 
from the racketeers. This taut 
situation signifies only one thing: 
baseball practice is in full swing, 
right smack dab in the middle of 
the campi. 

Coach Stout's "obstacle course" 
could hardly be considered less 
favorable, but if the Buffs come 
off with a winning season this 
year (which they are hoping to 
do for the first time since the 
Middle Ages), a share of the 
credit could possibly go to the 

early conditioning under adverse 

In all seriousness, this year's 
edition of the Milligan Buffs 
Baseball Team should be a good 
one. Stout concedes that for the 
first time since he took the reigns 
as coach, he has some depth, 
which always breeds healthy in- 
tra-squad competition. 

To support his optimism, he 
has lined up a tough 25-game 
schedule and invested a great 
deal in supplies and ammuni- 
tion in order to bolster his 
chances of a victorious season 
for the potentially great team. 

You can feel the enthusiasm 
when attending a practice ses- 
sion or talking privately with 
any of the players. The poor at- 
titudes of last year have taken 
a noticeable change for the bet- 
ter. Even the coach seems to be 
a happier, more relaxed and con- 
fident field general, not that he 
is letting up any, but because 
there is more hustle this year. 

The brunt of the pitching this 
year will be distributed between 
able veteran starters Paul Hall 
and Phil Webster, along with 
Happy Valley's star rookie, Lynn 
Tipton. The outfield will have 

such good stick men as Don Pick- 
ford, Phil Hanson, Bobby Hines, 
Gary Aldridge, Bud Campbell 
and that utility infielder-out- 
fielder, Bob Greer, last year's 
conference batting champion. 

It would take too much space 
to list all of the other fine play- 
ers and their qualities. All we 
are asking you — the student 
body — to do, is get out there and 
attend every home game to give 
the boys the support and backing 
they deserve. See you at Moun- 
tain Home Park for the first 

Basketball Closes Strong 

The Buffs, after a rather shaky 
start, finished the season with 
impressive victories over Bryan 
College, Tusculum, and David 
Lipscomb to give them their long- 
est win streak of the season. 

The fired-up Milligan five fin- 
ished the regular play with a 
hard-fought win over their NEW 
rivals, the Pioneers. The final 
score was 72-70 in the most ex- 
citing game of the year. 

The Buffs then entered the 
V.S.A.C. tournament as under- 
dogs and upset the much stronger 
Lipscomb team which had taken 
the Milligan quintet too lightly. 
The next night MC met the 
Western Division champs, Austin 
'Peay, who completely out-played 
the Buffs that night. 

The Herd should be stronger 
next year because they will lose 
only two players, seniors Terry 
Black and Dana Young. In the 
four years Black has played at 



Regularly scheduled games 
have come to a close for the 1961- 
1962 Men's Intramural basketball 
season on the Milligan campus. 
Team 11 rolled to an undefeated 
season, with a 4-0 record. This 
was the only team to finish with 
an unblemished record. There 
was a three-way tie for second 
place between Teams 5, 3 and 9 
which had identical 3-1 records. 

Bob Hull, of Team 12, was the 
one-game scoring leader this year 

Milligan, he was twice elected to 
the all-V.S.A.C. team, due to his 
outstanding performance, and 
also was chosen all-tourney this 
year. Young had to be satisfied 
with riding the bench for three 
long years at Cheek Gymnasium 
before he finally got a chance 
and proved himself a fine ball- 
player in this, his last year. 

with a resounding 34 points. 
Paul Hall was close behind with 
a 27 -point effort. 

A single elimination tourna- 
ment is in full swing to close out 
basketball for the year. 

Coming up in March are such 
intramural activities as bowling, 
weight-lifting, and badminton. A 
bowling tournament is in the 
planning stage, although the time 
and place have not been set as 
yet. The Student Council has 
agreed to pay 60 cents of the 
total amount necessary for each 
bowler to participate. 

At the present, the girls are 
participating in a round-robbin 
tournament in basketball. There 
are five teams competing: Team 
One — captain Brook Harmyer, 
Team Two — captain Carol Bark- 
er, Team Three— captain Francis 
Shipley, Team Four — captain 
Sally Gray, Team Five — captain 
Gail Jean. As of now, there is 
a three-way tie among teams 

On The Mats 

Wrestling, one of the oldest 
sports known to man, had its 
initial season at Milligan this 

Co-captains O. K. Yoo and 
Gordon Perry were the only 
grapplers who had had any pre- 
vious experience; consequently, 
the Buffs lost three of four 
matches. Yoo and Perry were un- 
defeated, Yoo obtaining one "tiger 
point" and Perry getting three. 
A wrestler gets a tiger point by 
pinning his opponent. 

An early exchange match with 
Clinch Valley resulted in 11-19 
and 13-21 defeats, while our sole 
victory, and a big one at that, 
was a 19-13 decision over Carson- 
Newman. The muscle men enter- 
tained a strong Knoxville YMCA 
team and were defeated 13-23. 

Two, Three, and Five. The season 
for girls' basketball will end

The annual year's end Awards 
Banquet is scheduled for Monday 
evening at 6:00 in Sutton dining 
hall. After dinner the program 
will consist of the passing out of 
awards which various students 
have achieved during the year. 

Mr. Price will be the M. C. 
for the program. Awards will be 
given for intercollegiate athletics, 
cheerleading, intramurals, Annie

evening will be the presentation 
of the Outstanding Senior award. 
The person is chosen by the fac- 
ulty on the basis of scholarship, 
leadership, and citizenship. All 
students and faculty members 
are urged to attend this banquet. 

Today is May Day and at 2:30 
on Hardin lawn the annual May 
Pageant will be presented. The 
theme this year is "... a young 
man's fancy . . ." and centers 
around the never ending boy 
chases girl epic. 

The court for the program is: 
May Queen and King, Norma 
Faye Barker and Terry Black; 
Senior representatives, Marilyn 
Knapp and Charlie Golding, 
Gloria Cobb and John Magill; 
Junior representatives, Nancy 
Conrad and Dave Eunson, Gerry 
Wells and Fred Norris; Sopho- 
more representatives, Anita Mur- 
ray and Jerry Carroll; Freshmen 
representatives, Judy Jones and 
Bob Hull. 

The program centers around 
Larry Spangler, our shy, spring 
Romeo who finally decides that 
it is time to fall in love. We see 
him dreaming about all the beau- 
tiful girls he has seen at Milligan 
throughout the year, and finally 
joining in May Day Rehearsals 
to be near his "fancy," Frances 

Frances, being a popular young 
lady, never dreams that she's the 
object of his affection and gaily 
rehearses with the folk rhythm 
class for May Day. 

Immediately after the pro- 
gram, a reception will be held on 
Hardin lawn for all those attend-

will long remember. 

The following examples are the epitome of success. Each was 
included in the Chiche Hall of Fame by the unanimous vote of the 
reviewing committee. The mere mention of these speeches will bring 
to mind vivid details, even if you have never heard the statements. 

1. "Now you're in for it, Stranger. That man you just shot 
was Big Luke Stringer's brother. Big Luke ain't gonna 
like it." 

2. "I had a son once. He would have been just about your 

3. "Doctor, will she be all right?" "Well, I can't say for sure, 

4. "Why, I declare, Mr. Dillion, what on earth would he want 
to do a thing like that for?" "I don't know, Chester." 

5. "No, you'll have to go on without me. This place will be 

blown to kingdom come in 57 seconds. Now get out of 
here! That's an order!" 

6. "Where shall I start?" "Why don't you start at the be-

agers of today feel just like Beethoven's music did in his 

8. "We have ways of making people talk. Take him, boys." 

9. "This is the Police. You are surrounded. Throw down your 
weapons and come out with your hands up!" 

10. "He's washed up. They'll never give him another ship after 
that business in the Philippines." 

Well, there you have them — the Top Ten. Five are from tele- 
vision and five from motion pictures. Although it's hard to tell 
which is which. If your favorite didn't appear, don't be dispondent. 
Maybe it will make it next year! 

Many of us thought we were 
seeing double when Mary Fred- 
rixon's twin sister, Willie, a 
junior at Lincoln Christian Col- 
lege, was here for a visit re- 
cently. Even Mr. Price was be- 
ginning to wonder what was in 
that Pepsi he had before class! 

Some of the Milligan students 
have really taken to heart the 
expression "Be kind to your web- 
footed friends." 

You'd never believe that the 
"man behind the plate" at Mil- 
ligan's baseball game is that 
quiet John Pickford. If you 
haven't HEARD him yet, you're 
really missing something. We've 
never heard him talk so much, 
but we've been wondering what 
it is he's saying! 

Wonder why so many of the 
boys take the back road to the 
campus now that warm weather 
has set in! 

Yes, the race for that "out- 

door" look is on. In fact, from 
the looks of some of our stu- 
dents one would think we have 
become integrated — or have been 
invaded by Indians! 

SMILE — you may be on can- 
did camera! 

It has been rumored that Dave 
Brandon has a job as a bus driv- 
er for next year, since he's been 
getting so much experience 

Wonder whose name Jerry 
"Breezy" Shelton is pronouncing 
backward now! 

All residents of Hardin Hall 
will be glad when May Day is 
over. Seems as though they don't 
really appreciate being awakened 
at 7:00 a.m. by the May Court

Dear Miss Bliss . . . 

Niagara Falls (I.L.S.): 

Hello, again, all you sweeties 
at Milligan! It's been so long 
since you've been fortunate 
enough to hear from me that I 
know you must be frantic with 
all those love problems, yesss. 
Well, for the past few weeks I've 
been up here at the Falls just 
watching all the blissful young 
folks like you-all who have made 
the big blunder — uh, er, I mean, 
started down the road to happi- 
ness, yes. But enough about me, 
it's you who have the problems, 
and I must solve them before 
you lose all hope. 

This month's first letter is a 
real corker, yess: 

Dear Miss Bliss, 

We are worried sick. All of us 
have been trying all year to get 
this cute senior to date us and 
now it looks as though there's 
no hope. He has been selling 
tickets to movies and special 
campus shows, making a pile of 
money each time, and now we 
are really afraid that he's going 
to take all that money and get 
away without ever having dated 
us. Can you help us? 

Countless Concerned Coeds 
Dear Coeds. 

I can just bet that a fellow 
like that has a theme song like 
"I RAN ALL the way home I" 
Just don't let him be unnER- 
VIN' you, Yankees like that 
axe a daime a dozen. 

Miss Bliss 

Here's another goodie, Yess: 

Dear Miss Bliss, 

My girlfriend embarrasses me 
ind I don't know what to do. 
rhe whole trouble is that I've 
ilways had a complex about be- 
ing so small (I wear elevator 
shoes). Well, she's all the time 
talking around in extra-low 

shoes and it makes me look even 
bigger than I mean to. Can you 
give me some advice? I've tried 
talking to her about it, but she's 
one of those "Jones girls" and 
you know how they are. 

Baffled Bob 
Dear Baffled, 

Without a doubt, you have 
quite a problem there. All I 
can say is, why don't you sug- 
gest she wear rain boots and 
maybe she'll get the idea. 

Miss Bliss 
Here's the last one and I think 
you'll like it, too (notice my ex- 
pert advice): 
Dear Miss Bliss, 
My problem is very simple, 
but it's driving me wild! The 
fellow I go with smokes a pipe, 
and I think it must give him a 
cold because he's constantly 
blowing his nose. It's not that I 
mind his nose-blowing: it's just 
that when the sound shatters 
windows clear across the campus, 
I begin to feel self-conscious. 
What can I do? 

Buffaloed Beth 
Dear Buffaloed, 
Your problem IS pretty sim- 
ple and personally I see noth- 
ing to fret about, but if you 
want him to stop, why don't 
you try giving him something 
else to keep him busy — like 
hives or something? As for his 
pipe, it might be that it's dirty 
or has old, modly tobacco in 
it: why don't you offer to 
wash it out? Miss Bliss 

Oh my! I can tell by the 
screams and the rush of people 
going over the Falls that another 
couple need me to solve their 
problems so I must be toddling 
along, yesss. Bye now, and keep 
your lipstick dry.

Cupid Keeps 
Busy This Summer 

Who says Cupid isn't constant- 
ly at work, and it seems as 
though the Milligan campus is 
one of his busiest regions! As a 
result of "Cupid's capers" during 
this and past years, there will 
be a seige of altar-bound traffic 
for many past and present Milli- 
gan students this summer. 

Some of you less fortunate stu- 
dents who haven't found a sum- 
mer job yet can check over the 
following schedule. Your summer 
would be well taken care of if

Thursday night, April 26, 1962, 
Milligan's campus was enlivened 
by the nationally known Four 
Preps. This famous group brought 
an unprecedented program to our 
campus. The Four Preps sang 
their favorite recorded selection, 
which seemed to be the favorite 
of the audience as well — "Moon 
River." One of the bigger hits 
was the delightful novelty take- 
off on other recording groups. 
The Preps seem to have a spe- 
cial talent in this line. The Four 
Preps were accompanied by an 
excellent jazz trio, who also 
played several combo selections. 
All who attended give a well- 
deserved thank you to the Stu- 
dent Council, for another Milli-

National Players to Present OTHELLO 

In the auditorium February 1 
at eight o'clock in the evening, 
the National Players will present 
their production of Shakespeare's 
tragedy, OTHELLO. 

OTHELLO is one of Shake- 
speare's great tragedies, often de- 
scribed as his "perfect play." It 

centers upon the villainy of Iago 
who plays upon the emotions of 
jealousy and love in OTHELLO, 
causing OTHELLO to turn to 
revenge and hate and thus bring 
about a tragic end for those who 
loved him most. 
Shakespearean tragedy is not

The Neiv Attitude 


A strange disease has taken a strong hold on Americans over, 
the last twenty years. This country, once so proud of its ability to 
do anything well, has seeemingly lost much of its unique ability 
to excel. People no longer take pride in their work. Newly built 
homes show signs of hurried, unconcerned, unskilled labor. The 
materials used are also of inferior quality. Often new products prove 
to be entirely unusuable. Professional men lack the dedication which 
they once had. Material gain accomplished through the least effort 
seems to be the one great ambition of Americans. By equating 
achievement with the ownership of things, we cheat both ourselves 
and others. 

The college students are by no means left untouched by this 
debilitating illness. It has become fashionable to just get by in 
school. The student most admired by everyone is the person who 
gets a good grade with little or no work. No effort is put forth by 
the majority of students to do really well or satisfy their own de- 
sire for achievement, There are people who have graduated with 
a degree who are incapable of forming a complete sentence; who 
are almost completely ignorant about subjects in which they had a 
course only one semester earlier; or who still read at an unbbevably 
slow rale. This deplorable situation is not the fault of the professor 
but of the student who refuses to absorb the knowledge presented 
to him. 

It has often been said that one only cheats himself when he tries 
to get by without really applying himself to anything. This is not 
generally true. Of course the individual is cheated in that, upon his 
graduation, he finds himself prepared for nothing. What firm de- 
sires a business major who has no conception of the basic principles 
of ecomonics? Who needs a coach who has nothing else to offer 
but ability in the one sport in which he has the most interest? 

The majority of the students here at Milligan prepare either 
for a teaching career or for some aspect of the Christian ministry. 
It is in these occupations that the most harm is done to others by 
a leader who is unprepared to lead. Of what use is a minister who 
has no ability to apply his message to world events because of his 
poor background in history, political science, or literature? How can 
he possibly help someone to gain new spiritual insight when he is 
sunk in ignorance himself? 

The teacher who is not well versed both in his field of spe- 
cialization and in the art of teaching does a great disservice to 
the children who look to him for an education. 

Americans have lost their perspective. Money is not the panacea 
for the situation in the world today. It's not that easy. Problems 
are solved not by acquiring wealth but by the old, time-tried ap- 
plication of intellect and integrity.

Fred Norris and Alva Lee Size- 
more are this month's senior boy

these two seniors certainly qual- 
ify them to be recognized.

Alva Lee Sizemore comes from 
Painesville, Ohio. Her major is 
English and her minor is history- 
She is planning to teach English

now singing in the Keynote Trio. 
She has been in choir three years

Christmas vacation proved 
memorable for these girls who 
returned with shiny sparklers on 
their left hands. Sylvia Lyons, 
Mary Blount, Maxine Miller, and 
Dixie Hill. Congratulations, 
ladies, we hope you'll all be very 

But there were also those ladies 
who were engaged before Christ- 
mas and came back married. They 
include Reba Sue Carroll and 
Margaret Harber. 

Ask Alva Lee which she likes 
better, circles or triangles, jets 
or buses? No one knows why, 
but the United States Army wants 

. . . that King George I of Eng- 
land could not understand the 
English language? 

. . , that St. Patrick was not 
born in Ireland? 

. . . that there are fifteen motor 
vehicles in the United States for 
every mile of street or highway? 

. . . that more people live in 
Asia than in all the other con- 
tinents put together? 

. . . that Alcxnnder the Great 
ordered his soldiers to shave their 
beards so that their enemies 
could not grab them? 

. . . that a rope of spider's silk 
one inch thick would he three 

times stronger than the same size 
rope made of iron? 

. . . that it would take two 
thousand years to spend a billion 
dollars at the rate of one dollar 
per minute? 

. . . Dwarfs were valued so 
highly by the Romans that they 
sometimes used artificial methods 
of stunting the growth of chil-

Wrestling has taken hold of 
Milligan. now, before we let these 
men on the mat, we should give 
them an advanced course in shoe-

The warm weather which pre- 
vailed for the greater part of a 
week gave many students a false 
sense of spring. Convertible tops 
came down, shirt-clad football 
players went back to Webb grid- 
iron, and windows were left open 
to take advantage of an early 
spring. The colds, flu. and sniffles 
of the campus are epitaph enough. 

Well, seniors, prepare for tears, 
you have just completed many 
"lasts" at Milligan College: last 
Founder's Day as a student, last 
Twirp Week, last Christmas 
Party, and for the real climax, 
you're VERY last registration and 
HURRAH! no more finals! (are 
there tears yet?) 

Lowell Pcmberton and Dick 
Toaster surely did look graceful 
in their "Swan Lake" rendition 
in Training class. Training for

Betty, Lottie. Darlene, and 
Myrtle have finally converted 
their rooms into homes with the 
addition of two special overstuf- 
fed "thirsts" to sit on. They were 
bought at a rummage sale — 2 for 
$5!, and were transported in the 
Scout, a very spcciolly-made ve- 
hicle for carrying chairs. 

Th<> main trouble with the 
straight and narrow is there's no

Dear Miss Bliss, 

I'm writing for some advice concerning this fellow I've been 
dating. He is a pretty nice guy, but certain habits of his worry me. 
For instance, I think he must have a phobia about prisons because 
two or three nights a week he runs around wearing a striped shirt. 
With tendencies like that, I'm kind of afraid he might blow the 
whistle on our dating and jilt me. What should I do? 

Jittery Joyce 

Dear Jittery. 

No doubt you have somewhat of a problem, but there is not 

really much lo be alarmed about unless he should show signs 

of eccenticilies like playing a "squeeze-box" or driving a Buick, 

yess. If he should do something like that. I would begin to worry 

about his pierpose, and beware lest he try to rob you of your

Wasn't that some letter, yesss. Well, here's another that's just 
as wild, yess: 
Dear Miss Bliss, 

I have recently started dating a girl on campus who is really 
my idea of sharp. But I once heard her say that she'd "rather be 
dead than have red on the head." Soon after that we started dating. 
Could that have been some reflection of her opinion of me?

Dear Dazzlod, 

It could easily be that that is an indication of her feelings 
for you. As a test of her true faith, why don't you both dye

and administration. I have heard several people say that for the 

required of them. Many feel that the school is at last very much 
equal to other schools in the South and they are proud of it. The 
ever-increasing number of applicants for Milligan and the plans 
for further construction of buildings definitely add to the school 

Why is school spirit left up to so few? Everyone of us should 

realize that the boys who participate in the athletic program of 

Milligan are representing our school and us and we should follow 

. them through thick or thin. I know we would all get more out of 

Beverly teller an Olympic college d we wou id just support "Our boys"— they are really great! 

School spirit — what is it? To me it is something that everyone 
should have and sometimes it is definitely lackng in Milligan stu- 
dents. One example of the lack of school spirit is seen when the 
fans leave the ball games before they are even over. Not only does 
this show poor spirit but it is very impolite. If there were a park- 
ing problem, maybe there would be a reason to leave early; but, 
since this is not the case, why leave early? 

Many times I have asked people to cheer at the games. Their 
answer — "Why should we? There is nothing for which to cheer." 
If the team were winning these same people would probably be

Dear Sullen, 

Your problem is not unique, but it is unusual because usually

Then, laying a finger aside of his nose, 

And giving a nod, across the campus he goes. 
He sprang to the Ad Building and lo his team gave a whistle.

Grapplers Sport 7 Win, 3 Loss Record 

Perry And Bowers Leading Squad 

All Milliganites can be proud matches against only three de- 
of this year's wrestling team as feats. The Buffs have amassed 
they now have won seven 172 total points against only 137 
for their opponents with only 
three matches left this season. 
Skip Perry is currently leading 
the attack with a perfect 10-0 
record. Following close behind is 
Sam Bowers with a 9-1 record. 
Sam's only defeat came in the 
team's last match against Appa- 
lachian State. 

The grapplers started the sea- 
son with a 4-0 record by defeat- 
ing Clinch Valley twice and the 
Knoxville "Y" and Carson-New- 
man. C-N fell victim to the Buffs 
by a score of 25 to 11 on their 
own campus. All of MiUigan's 
points were by pins as Bowers, 
Perry, Arnold Dort, Lee Cerovac, 
and Rex Jackson all toppled their 

The Buff stampede was haired 
when Appalachian State stalled 
the host team by a score of 10 
to 20. Sam Bowers and Skip 
Perry were the only winners as 
they pinned their men to put 
their personal records at five 
wins and no loses. 

The squad then got back to 
Iheir winning ways by invading 
Maryville and carting off an 18 
to 13 victory. Arnold Dort and 
Lee Cerovac won by pins as 
Bowers and Perry again won. 
Wayne Oden battled his man to 
a tie in helping the Buffs post 
their fifth win. 

Not having enough, Maryville 
then came to Cheek Gym to be 
dealt another loss. This time the 
score was 15 to 13 as the Buffs 
were unable to get any pins. 
However, Bowers. Perry. Oden, 
Cerovac, and Rex Jackson were 
able to outpoint their men to 

SAM BOWEHS ... 9-1 

put together a team victor. 1 . 

A large crowd witnessed the 
Carson-Newman return match 
and were able to cheer the 
"grunt 'n groaners" on to a 20 
to 16 win. This match had six 
pins, but Milligan had four of 
them which was enough to hang 
on for a win. Our own Tom Mc- 
Cune was pinned ■ in his match 
as the team got behind 0-5 at the 
start. Tom's inexperience was too 
much for his desire as he lost, 
but time will prove that Tom 
is a good wrestler. Sam Bowers 
then started the herd rolling by 
pinning his man in the first 
period. Skip Perry followed by 
pinning his man during the sec- 
ond period and Wayne Oden 
pinned his man in the third 
period of his match. Al Treynor 
was then pinned and Arnold Dort 
lest by an 0-C rcore. Arnold's 
opponent received two points for 
the first take-down and after that 


neither man was able to score 
again. Lee Cerovac lost by a 1-3 
score because his defender was 
more adept at getting out-of- 
bounds than at wrestling. The 
match score al this point was 15 
to 16 in favor of C-N, but Li'l 
Rex Jackson again thrilled the 
fans by pinning his "compara- 
tively enormous" opponent dur- 
ing the second period to gain 
his seventh personal win and also 
the team's seventh win. 

In thetr last two outings, the 
squad has been turned back by 
losing to Morehead by two points 
and to Appalachian State by a 
score of 3 to 21. Against More- 
head, Skip Perry won by a pin 
and Ok Jin Yoo and Jackson 
also gave winning performances. 
Skip Perry was the only man 
able to win against Appalachian 
State as the rest of the Buffs 
encountered an off-night. 

The team's remaining three 

matches are against Morehead, 
the Knoxville "Y," and al home 
against Appalachian State. This 
match will be held at Cheek 
"fieldhouse" on February 19. Let's 
all be there to back the team 
in avenging their previous loss 
to this squad.

a precedent for future outings, 
and that eventually an annual, 
mid-semester ski-trip will win a 
permanent place on the Milligan

The Milligan campus is being 
represented in the City Basket 
ball League at Johnson City. 
Several boys formed an inde- 
pendent squad to play in this 
league and are being sponsored 
by Coca-Cola. The team is 
coached by Mike Combs who is 
proud of the fact they are using 
a highly modified, Cincinnati 
"Swing 'n Go", offense. The team 
plays two nights a week on 
either Monday, Tuesday, or 
Thursday. They currently have

ond place. Other members of the 
team are: Dave Herndon, Ed 
Pierpont, Gary Nicholson, Darrel 
Hiatt, Calvin Ross, Larry Reyn- 
olds, Dennis Moulder, Hershel 
Hodge, Bill Nice, Harold Gold- 
ing, and Pete Price. 

Men's Intramurals 

BASKETBALL. With the sea- 
son approximately half over, 
teams one find six are currently 
leading the league with 7-0 and 
6-0 records respectively. Team 
one is captained by Larry Reyn- 
olds and team six by Dave Hern- 
don. These two t-:ams will collide 
in a preliminary game when the 
varsity takes on L.M.U. February 
2. Tentative plnns call for a tour- 
nament to be played and for an 
all-star game against the winner. 
These will be held tit the climax 
of the season. 

BOWLING. The year's second 
bowling session will soon begin. 
Look for announcements and 
sign up as soon as possible. A 
large participation is expected. 

BASKETBALL. As the girls' 
basketball season draws to a 
close, team four (Cunningham) is 
in first place with team three 
in second. Teams one and five 
are tied for third. A single elimi- 
nation tournament will be held 
to determine a winner for this 
year. For you who have never 
seen a girls' basketball game, we 
urge you to come to the gym 
some night and see some REAL 

ALL-STAR TEAM. Ten girls 
have been chosen to an All-Star 
basketball team, This team was 
formed to offer extramural op- 
portunity to those girls who 
have a special interest in basket- 
ball. After a little more practice, 
they hope to play the city league 
teams and perhaps some college 
teams also. The girls who have 
been chosen are: Pat Loichlc, 
Beverly Weller, Judy Roush. 
Carol Barker, Marty Hannum. 
Janet Knowles. Pat Wilbeck, 
Connie Linton, Sally Grey, and 
Lorna Crouch. 

An old man, a patient in a hos- 
pital, refused to eat a dish of 
gelatin. Declared he, "I nin't gon- 
na eat anything more nervous 
than 1 am!" 

so don't be left out. 

PLAY-DAY. Two play-days are 
being planned. One will be for 
the women and one for the men. 
The women's will be held on 
February 2, and the men's on 
February 16. These days offer 
excellent chances of picking up 
award points. 

The new year found Coach 
Walker still working to find a 
winning combination that could 
consistantly play good team ball. 
The team's record as to date is 
3 wins and 10 losses. In all the 
games but one the Buffs have 
stayed close to their opponents 
until the wanning minutes and 
then fell behind. 

The Maryville Scotties con- 
quered the Buffs in Cheek Gym 
by a score of 83-72. The Buffs 
were ahead in the early part of 
the game but could not main- 
tain the lead. Rusty Stevens had 
his best ' night from the field 
hitting a fine 69% on 9 of 13 
attempts. Ken Robinson also 
sparkled by hitting 9 out of 9 
free throws. Leading scorers were 

Defeats Milligan 

On Saturday, January 10, thr 
Carson-Newman Eagles trounced 
the Buffs soundly. Carson-New- 
man hit 50% nf the goals from 
the field as they maintained l 
tremendous pace. Only I 
rell could find the basket with 
any consistency. He hit some fan- 
tastic long two-hnnd set shots. 
He had 18 points for the 
hitting 8-13 from the field and 
2-3 from the foul tine. Arwood, 
Ellington, Bryan, and Ruttrell 
all were m double figures for the 

MtlliRan's record is now 3-10. 
The Buffs piny Tusculum on 
Saturday, January* 26, at Check 

Stevenson with 19, Robinson 15, 
Wayne Herndon 12, and Billy 
Ray HarreU 10. 

As of January 10th, Robinson 
was third among small college 
leaders in foul shooting with 30 
for 31 for a 96.2%. Rusty Stevens 
at that time was 19th in scoring 
with a 23.6 average per game. 

The Buffs took a two day road 
trip to play Bryan and Tennessee 
Wesleyan. With a new starting 
combination, the Buffs surprised 
a highly Bryan team by winning, 
76-75. Robinson scored 18 points 
and pulled down 10 rebounds to 
lead Milligan. Dwight Barker hil 
for 15 points and pulled in seven 
rebounds. Mike Phipps scored 
nine points and Chili Campbell 
scored eight. Bryan, going into 
tins, was averaging over 90 

points a game. 

The Buffs then traveled on to 
Wesleyan. The team was really 
fired up as the score was tied 
at 33 all with 18:55 to go in the 
game. But the herd slowed down 
and Wesleyan moved on to a 79- 
57 victory- Rusty Stevens scored 
21 points. Herdon 12, and Rob- 
inson 11. 

Highly touted King College 
defeated the Buffs by a score of 
82-66. but actually the game was 
much closer than the score indi- 
cates. A new starting five played 
very well together but again the 
Buffs wore down in the second 
half. Dwight Barker pulled in 
16 rebounds and Billy Ray Har- 
reU scored 19 points to lead the 
Buffs. Wayne Herndon also had 
15 points.

Dr. Jauncey Delivers 
Welshimer Lectures 

The Welshimer Lectures are a 
fairly recent innovation at Mil- 
ligan College. These lectures were 
begun as a memorial to Dr. P. H. 
Welshimer by his son and daugh- 
ter after his death. The purpose 
was to bring the "old time 
gospel" to the students at Mil- 
ligan. Previous speakers have 
been Dr. W. R. Walker, one of 
the outstanding ministers of the 
Christian Church, a close friend 
of Dr. Welshimer, and father of 
our President Walker; President 
Bell, President at Johnson Bible 
College, and Dr. Ard Hoven, 
minister of the Broadway Chris- 
tian Church, Lexington, Ken-

Milligan Reports 
To Southern 

Contrary to prevailing rumors, 
Milligan's annual report to the 
Southern Association WAS WELL 
RECEIVED. The President. Dean, 
and Executive Secretary ap- 
peared before a committee of 
fifteen members of the Southern 
Association, composed mostly of 
presidents of universities, col- 
leges, and junior colleges. They 
were questioned about several of 
the activities of the college and 
were commended highly con- 
cerning most of these, particularly 
in the area of alumni giving. 
The Association was well-pleased 
and so expressed themselves with

Bloodmobile To Arrive March 8 

The Red Cross Bloodmobile will be here Friday, March 8, 
at Sutton Hall from 1-5:00 p.m. All students under age 21 must 
have parental permission to give blood. Slips will be passed out 
to all students thai can be lent home to have their parents 
sign and return. Better than lOSr of the students of neighboring 
schools have been giving blood. 

Remember that giving one pint of blood insures you and 
the members of your immediate family the blood you might 
need for one year. Every minute, every day — over eight bottles 
of blood arc used to treat the ill and injured. This is over four 
million bottles in a year— the Red Cross supplies two million 

The cooperation of faculty, staff, and students is needed to 
make the program o success— wt- NEED 200 pints' 

The Knickerbocker Quartet 
presented a concert February 18, 
1963, in the auditorium as a part 
of the Milligan College Concert 
Lecture Series. The program was 
in keeping with the cosmopolitan 
traditions of the Knickerbockers 
—Old English Airs, French Folk 
and Art songs, Viennese Waltzes, 
Negro Spirituals, and Broadway 
Melodies, with opera, musical 
comedy, classical, and modem 
music all represented. 

The group was composed of 
Ann Gardner, Soprano; Ruth 
Ray, Contralto; Richard Kramer, 
Tenor; and John West, Bans. 
Pianist was Donald Hassard.

America's Greatest Leaders 


February is the month in which we usually think of two of 
America's greatest leaders. In 1732 George Washington was born 
on the shores of the Potomac River, in Westmoreland County, 

Today people think of Virginia as an eastern state of old cul- 
ture, but in Washington's youth it was on the western frontier and 
at constant war with savages. Young Washington was a pioneer, 
a scout, a pathfinder, an Indian fighter; he actually hunted buffalo. 

Much has been handed down in hisotry about feats and legends 
concerning Washington and his bravery. He led our country in its 
formative years and he firmly helped establish the rich heritage 
that we as Americans are so proud to have. 

He turned many men against him when he was President be- 
cause he would allow no friendships and no personal favoritism to 
influence him. 

In December, 1799, as he rode about his fields in a snowstorm, 
he caught a severe cold. This developed into acute quinsy that made 
breathing difficult. He kept his finger on his own pulse until it 
stopped and his hand fell away as he died, December 14, 1799. 

Even his former enemies mourned him with reverence as a 
patriot and a hero without an equal, without a blemish in his devo- 
tion to his people. The reverence all nations feel for Washington 
honors him and them. His illustrious example, however, loses its 
value if he is thought of as a superhuman being, His glory may be 
attributed to the love he bore his fellow man and to the act that he 
resisted the temptation to seek power and glory. We now celebrate 
his birth on February 22. 

Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809. in Kentucky. 
At the age of seven, his family moved to Indiana where they carved 
out a new home in the wilderness. It was here that Lincoln spent 
his formative years. He read widely, reading every single book in 
his area; and he questioned parents, friends, and strangers. When 
he was twenty-one, Lincoln's family moved to Illinois but Lincoln 
was not one to settle down so he moved out into the vast nation 
to be on his own. 

Years passed, and we find out our country facing an internal 
strife; al this same time we see it electing as President, Abraham 
Lincoln. But is was too late, all was lost, at least that was the gen- 
eral feeling; but. in 1865, we find our country united again. Only 
superhuman efforts and tireless work by a great man could have 
brought about this change and Lincoln was this man. 

Then on April 14, 1865, Lincoln and his wife went to see a play 
at the Ford Theatre in Washington. It was here that Lincoln was 
mortally wounded by the actor, John Wilkes Booth. At 7:25 the 
next morning the attendants pronounced him dead. The Secretary 
of War, Edwin M. Stanton, who had sat beside the dying man 
throughout the night said, "Now he belongs to the ages." Truly 
nothing more could be said for him, for he was one of the greatest 
. men of old. 

Drop-Outs Analyzed 

The following is an analysis 
of the first semester drop-outs 
by classes: 

Freshman Class 14 Boys 4 girls 
Sophomore Class 5 boys 5 girls 
Junior Class 6 boys 3 girls 

Senior Class 4 boys 1 girl 

Three of the seniors graduated. 
There were five people taking 
one or two courses only. They 
finished their work; so, there- 
fore, did not return. More than 
half of the total did not return 
for reasons other than transfer- 
ring. The total drop-out percent- 
age was far below the national 
average. Finances was the num- 
ber one reason given. Several did 
not return because of low grade- 
point averages. Illness kept four 
from returning. 

Fifteen students transferred to 
Milligan from other colleges. 
Nine old students returned, 
which adds to the fact that we 
lost fifteen full-time students.

tucky. This year the messages, 
brought by Dr. James H. Jauncey. 
were inspirational and stimulat-

he came to the United States in 
1948. He has earned ten academic 
degrees, has won the Freedom 
Foundation award for the best 
patriotic address of 1959. and has 
worked on the White Sands Mis- 
sile Ranges in New Mexico. 
Although he is only forty-three 
years of age, he has written over 
four hundred books and articles, 
some of which we have in our 

We wish to thank the Welshi- 
mers for giving us the privilege 
of hearing this great man speak. 



We live in a turbulent unrestful world in an era of violent 
changes. Ideologies are pushing and struggling with each other for 
the upper hand. The masses are pushed one way and then another 
through the use of skillful propaganda. We, as Milligan students, 
are supposed to be "the hope of the world." This is often rather 
difficult to imagine. The college- trained person is supposed to 
emerge from a cocoon of comparative ignorance and ill-founded 
prejudice through liberal education which allows him to be exposed 
to many different ideas which have moved men through the ages. 
We are supposed to learn to make a rational judgment and form 
or enrich our personal philosophy of life. 

It is often bothersome to me that we seem to be completely 
removed from the world here at Milligan — and it seems to be a 
voluntary retreat. There is little or no interest in the international 
affairs which will be the decisive factors in tomorrow's history. 
The outcome of the Common Market, the new surge of nationalism 
in Africa and the Orient, and the seeming realignment of the 
Communist powers will determine the course of our lives. 

The Democratic and Republican parties are already beginning 
to prepare themselves for 1964's presidential compaign. Goldwater 
and Rockefeller vie for power in the Republican Party — Kennedy 
seems unchallenged in his bid for a second term. The campus is 
predominantly Republican but there is still room for political de- 
bate. Students should not have to be pushed into reading news- 
papers or news magazines such as TIME and U. S. NEWS AND 
WORLD REPORT. Current and foreign affairs offer a deeper look 
into the intricacies of diplomacy. 

In the next issue I should like to print some opinions on con- 
servatism v/s liberalism in the U. S. Government. If you are in- 
terested in offering something, contact either Anita Murray or me.

very much akin to the Milligan 
spirit. He places great emphasis 
on Christian Education and to- 
day many of his former pupils 
arc found in various places of 
importance in Africa. Garfield 
Todd's ambitions for the welfare 
of the African people rested on 
the redemption of all things, 
based on Christian Education. 

After nineteen years as Super- 
intendent and Principal of Cen- 
tral School in Southern Rhodesia, 
he was elected a member of the 
Southern Rhodesian Parliament 
and in 1953 was called to the 
distinguished position of prime 
minister. Here he concerned him- 
self with the extension of the 
franchise, based on an African's 
education, not his money. During 
his prime ministership, he was 
the founder of the first five-year 
plan of education in Rhodesia 
and Nyssaland. His program was 
highly successful, and as of 1960 
one hundred per cent of the 
white population and eighty per 
cent of the native population 
were enrolled in school. He lost

The Rambler 

This month the 'Rambler' rambled a little and took a tour with 
the Touring Choir to Cumberland and Harlen, Kentucky. 

Evie-babe. our annual bus driver, has a 10-year safety record 
going for himself, and drives best in reverse gear. 

On the trip up, over Black Mountain, the going got a little 
treacherous and nervously inclined Alva Lee gripped each armrest 
hoping that the bus wouldn't drop away under her, and Judy blew 
the horn to warn any cars coming around the dangerous hair-pin 

Dave Eunson. Harry Burwell, and Rod Price got right into the 
"swing" of things, being the first ones to find female companions 
at Cumberland. Gentlemen, was that "Raven's Roost?" 

Ann Bryant and Pat Mathews completed a 4-some to go bowling, 
with two of the local fellows. 

At the U. K. extension center there was much 'folk rhythming." 
Jim Price couldn't find a girl to fit his steps, so he soloed, to the 
delight and incredibility of many. 

Nancy Thomas tried many times to call roll, but we couldn't 
find a Tay-lah in the choir. (She must have gotten the wrong roll 

The woman at the drive-in restaurant couldn't believe her ears 
when Dave Steucher ordered, or tried to order, 150 hamburgers. 
Her last word was, "Help!" 

Rod Sturtz was busy trying to keep people out of the church 
Sunday night. He held the door shut in their faces until the choir 
was on the risers. 

The trip back was not as quiet and sleepy as one might expect. 
There was singing, etc.. (need we explain). The choir then stopped 
at Parthena's restaurant for food before completing the trip. 

The only person who was not tired upon pulling into Milligan 
was Evie-babe, who blew the horn down the highway and up the 
hill to announce our arrival.

Class Beauties To Be 
Announced In March 

The nnnual Valentine party 
which was to be held on Feb- 
ruary 9 was cancelled due to the 
number of students who would 
be absent from the campus on 
this dale, due to trips being made 
by the choir and wrestling team. 

The Student Council has de- 
cided lo have the party on March 
22, and to announce the class 
beauties at that time. A theme 
hus not been decided upon. The 
committees set up for the Valen- 
tine party will remuin in charge 
of thia affair. Judy Henry and 
Beth Reitmayer ore co-chairmen. 


Now that the semester tests 
are over, the members of the 
Student Council are ready in 
swing into action once again, 
Some social activities are being 
planned and arc on the cnlcndnr 
for these tentative dates: Bowl- 
ing Party— March 1 or 5. Fancy 
Party— March 22, Roller Sk.iimK 
—April 9 or 19, Senior Snyonnra 
—May 17. 

Also on February 18, the- 
highly-rated Knickerbocker Quar- 
tet was on campus. And, as we 
have done in the past, wo asked 
that visitors not be sca'rd until

Spring brings many nice things, and among the rucesl is the 
feeling a woman gets as she discards her heavier darker clothes 
and gratefully immerses herself in the spirit of youth and of light- 
heart edncss. 

Fashions this year help us to be just as restful about life as we 
wish. Pink is the big color — every shade imaginable from the very 
light and cool to the hot sultry pinks. Blacks and greys teamed with 
mauve or taupe make fashion news, and jade green turns up both 
in wools and in lighter chiffons and organzas. 

Suits are being shown with a longer, leaner jacket and straight 
skirts are making a comeback. French cuffs are returning to 
prominence and the little shift dress continue;, to be popular. Neck- 
lines arc varied, but in general they are cut a little lower and 
make a graceful frame for the neck and face New fabrics encourage 
interest in a mixture of textures hitherto thought incompatible 
(for instance: tweed coupled with silk). Leather gloves reaching 
almost to the elbow provide an undeniable touch of elegance. Two- 
and three-piece ensembles provide a new i h 

Hals offer a variety of shapes. They have become slightly more 
mannish, often using wider brims and being warn at a jaunty angle. 
Turbans, howlrrs. and rollers remain popular. It remains fashion- 
able for the youthful lo go hatlcss or lo use a flat large bow m the 

Concentration is on the American look, end designers Norman 
Norell. Oleg Cassim, and Mainbocher arc enjoying a heyday. Thnr 
"Looks" can be faithfully copied through the use of Vogue designer 
patterns. A return to the unabashedly healthy look accompanies 
this interest in the book or America. High traced hair-dos are def- 
initely out and the smill head look has replaced them

Friday. February 22. 1963 



On January 26, MUIigan played 
host to the Tusculum Pioneers 
and proved too gracious a host 
as the locals bowed to a 78-82 
defeat. Skip Bishop from New- 
port, Tennessee, and Vic Lech-, 
torovic from New York led the 
victorious visitors with 24 and 20 
points respectively- Milligan's 
Rusty Stevens, finding the range 
again, scored 20 points, followed 
closely by Bill Harrell and Ken 
Kobinson with 15. Wayne Hern- 
don was also in double figures 
with 12. The Buffs fell behind 
early in the game and could never 
close the gap. 

January 31 found the Buffs 
traveling to Bristol to play King 
College. Milligan scored only 
three points in the first ten min- 
utes and lacked a scoring punch 
all night. There were no players 
scoring or rebounding in double 
figures. King's all -conference can- 
didate. Gerald O'DelL led all 
scorers with 24 points. Others in 
double figures for King were Sam 
Hinch with 18, Don Haney 11. 
and Dave Ridenour 10. 

Lincoln Memorial University 
traveled to Johnson City to play 
the locals in Cheek Fieldhouse. 
Darrell Hiatt led the fired-up 
Milligan squad to an upset 85-70 
victory. The Railsp litters of 
L.M.U. were never in the game 
as the Buffs started rapidly and 
were never headed. Hiatt hit a 
fantastic 11-14 field goal attempts 
and threw in eight free throws 
for 30 points. Ken Robinson fol- 
lowed with 18. Bill Harrell and 
Rusty Stevens each scored 12 and 
Wayne Herndon scored II, thus 
giving a tremendous scoring bal- 
ance with all five starters in 
double figures. The surprised 
Railsplitters were led by O. V. 
Debush of Flatwood, Virginia, 
and Ron Martin, a transfer stu- 
dent from Hiawassee Junior Col- 
lege where he played with guard 
Danny Schultz from the Univer- 

Men's Intramurals 

BASKETBALL. The season 
play for the men's round robin 
schedule is just about over and 
it appears that team No. 4 cap- 
tamed by Jerry Judd is going to 
be on top of the league as they 
have only lost one game and that 
was by forfeit. Teams No. 1 
(Larry Reynolds), No. 6 (Dave 
Hemdon). and No. 9 (Bob Dab- 
ncy) are close behind and a couple 
of upsets during the final week 
could change the final standings. 

At the close of the season a 
double elimination tournament 
will be held with the opponents 
being seeded according to final 
league standings. The winner of 
ihis tournament will play the 
winner of an inter-class tourna- 
ment, and the winner of this 
game will go against the varsity. 
More about these tourneys will 
be announced later, so two big 
tourneys and a couple of all-star 
games are coming up in the near 

SPORTS DAY. The Men's 
Sports' Day was held Saturday. 
February 16, in the gym and was 
fairly well accepted. Events par- 
ticipated in were swimming, ping 
pong, shuifleboard, badminton, 
foul shooting and wcightlifting. 
Individual winners will be an- 
nounced in the next issue. 

Grapplers Have Winning Season 

The second edition of wrestling 
put out by the Milligan campus 
has proved to be quite success- 
ful as the squad now boasts a 7- 
win, 4-loss record with only one 
match remaining. The squad's 
victories have come over Clinch 
Valley (twice), Carson-Newman 
(twice), Maryville (twice), and 
the Knoxville YMCA. Their losses 
have come at the hands of Ap- 
palachian State (twice). Morehead 
Stale, and the Knoxville T". 
The individual records of the 
team are as follows: Skip Perry 
11-0. Sam Bower 10-1. Rex Jack- 
son 7-4, Wayne Oden 5-5-1. 
Arnold Dort 5-5-1. Ok Jin Yoo 
4-2, and Lee Cerovac 2-6, Gary 
Jenkins has lost in his only ap- 
pearance for the varsity. 

In their last outing the Buffs 
were upended by the Knoxville 
"Y" team, 11 to 16. The Buffs 
had beaten this team earlier in 
the season, but were not quite up 
to par as Lee Cerovac was un- 
able to wrestle due to an injury. 
Milligan was unable to obtain 
any pins, although three men 
won and another tied. Those 
winning were Ok Jin Yoo. Sam 
Bower, and Skip Perry. Arnold 
Dort battled bis man to a stand- 
still as the match ended in a tie. 
Losing for the Buffs were Wayne 
Oden, Tom Spires, Rex Jackson, 
and Gary Jenkins. In preliminary 
competition. Bob Niemi came out 
victorious for the Ramblin' Herd 
and Tom McCune tied with his 


sity of Tennessee. Debush scored 
16 and Martin tallied for 14 
points. Milligan scored at a 53.6% 
rate from the floor on 30 of 56 
attempts and L-M.U. found the 
range on 30 of 75 for a 40% aver- 

On February 5, the Buffs tore 
into visiting Mars Hill College. 
The Buffs blistered the nets at 
a torrid 56.5% by hitting on 39 
of 69 attempts. Bill Harrell 
scored six straight points to start 
the game but was injured after 
only two minutes had gone by 
and he has not played since. 
Rusty Stevens played a fine game 
and was the Buffs' leading scorer 
with 29 points. Darrell Hiatt 
scored 15, Ken Robinson 14, 
Wayne Herndon 12 and surprise 
starter Charles Hendrix contrib- 
uted eight points. The final score 
was 88-61 as the Buffs revenged 
a previous loss to Mars Hill on 
December 3, when they were 
beaten 106-92. 

Milligan College caravaned to 
Greeneville in mass to watch the 

Buff-Pioneer "battle." The out- 
come was very disappointing as 
the Buffs battled the home Tus- 
culum crowd, two referees, and 
the Tusculum team to a 63-68 
defeat. The game was very close 
but an inability to score from 
the foul line with added waved 
arm assistance from the "distract- 
ing" home crowd made the dif- 
ference. It is doubtful if Milligan 
will ever again travel to the land 
of the "stick men.'* 

The Buffs played the Wasps 
of Emory and Henry on February 
12 in Cheek gym and lost 82-88. 
The Buffs fell behind early, 
finally caught up late in the 
second half, but 14 floor errors 
proved too costly and the Wasps 
went on to victory. Ken Robin- 
son, the fine freshman from Ft. 
Wayne, Indiana, led the Buff 
scoring with 29 points as he out- 
scored the Wasps Bob Hughes, a 
local Science Hill product, 29 to 
28. Rusty Stevens scored 18 points 
and Wayne Hemdon dropped in 
10 and also pulled in 19 rebounds.

Hi. all you sports fans out there at Milligan College! The ears 
and eyes of Sports-wise are back, once again, with some more 
slanderous exposes on the Buff sports scene. 

Within the last couple of weeks, winter sports seem to have 
stirred many students to the great out-doors. Members of the Ski 
Club could be seen whizzing down the slopes at Blowing Rock, on 
their first ski trip of the year. Among those merry skiers was the 
only casualty of the group. Miss Donna Haven. It seems that Donna 
came out on the losing end of an argument with a tree. Well. Donna. 
we wish you a speedy recovery, and I'll try to get those tweezers 
to you as soon as I can. 

A Milligan student has recently claimed an intercollegiate rec- 
ord in the "Sports Car" field. This person claims to have run out 
of gas a greater number of times in the first semester than anyone 
else. As far as I'm concerned, this holds true for BOTH semesters! 
Unfortunately. I can't mention his name because I'm afraid he'll 
get mad, stand up on his Skippy haunches, and put my kneecap in 
a half-nelson. Anyway, it looks like he hit* brought another honor 
to good of Milligan. 

Poor Wayne Herndon had a rough lime getting his passes com- 
pleted in the varsity's game against Mars Hill. It seems that all 
sorts of things kept getting in nil way. Here's a word of advice. 
Wayne, if you'd pass more, you'd probably get more points per game. 

By way of the grapevine, we hear that a student from Tusculum, 
hereafter known as CINDERELLA, pressed charges against an un- 
known assailant in the wake of the preliminary get-together held 
there before the Milligan-Tusculum game At last reports, the police 
hadn't yet discovered the identity of this varmit, but they now feel 
confident that they will ax *oon as they find the shoe that matches 
the footprints on the back of CINDERELLA'S pants. 

Congratulations go out to Rusty Stevens for just completing his 
third year in collegiate basketball without committing a personal 
foul. Of course, the referees have made a few bad calls and claimed 
Rusty made contact, but it has been clearly evident by Rusty 's 
reactions that he "didn't touch the guy." What I can't understand 
is how some of our opponents have myslerously tripped 
running down the floor 

For those of you who don't understand some of these reports. 
I advise you to get out to more of the athletic events so you won't 
miss seeing these exciting happenings. Remember, you don't have 
to participate in athletic* to be an athletic supporter

From The Pen Of: 


As your President, and being fully aware that the offices of 
both President and Vice-President can well take up ALL of one's 
spare time, I should like to offer some suggestions. But first I should 
like to mention that if a Student Council is to serve YOU most 
effectively, its members must first have time to spend on Council 
projects, and secondly, they must be WILLING to put the Student 
Council work ahead of ALL other extra-curricular activities. 

If you wish to be a part of, or to have, a more effective Student 
Council, please consider these suggestions: 

1 It is strongly suggested that candidates for the offices of 
President and Vice-President of the Student Body not be involved 
in any other extra-curricular organization in any major capacity. 

2 It is suggested that nominees for class offices, which will 
place those elected on the Council, not be involved in any other 
extra-curricular activities in any major way. All nominees who 
may be placed on the Council should be entirely willing to put the 
activities of the Council first, as far as extra-curriculars are con- 
cerned. This is because the duties of the Class and of the Council 
will consume the spare time which they might have. 

3 It is suggested that if one is not willing to give of his time 
he should not run for a Student Council office. 

If you want the best student government that you can have, 
choose your best leaders, and then arrange it so that they have 
the time to spend on their duties. 


Are vou a chronic griper? Do you see faults in this school and 
continually gripe about things? If so, why don't you take some 
responsibility to see that things get done! 

One way is to support your Student Council. Are you willing 
to help when asked? If you want a good college with the student 
voice heard, you have to be willing to support your leaders and freedom. 

On Saturday, February 23, the Student Council and other in- 
terested students participated in a Student Exchange, which was 
held at King College. They learned many new ideas, some of which 
the Student Council plans to place into effect in order to bring you 
better student government. 




I believe 

Your views seem to lie on the 
conservative side. 

He should go back to the little 
red school house. 

The students of King College are on the Honor System. This 
system places upon each student, not on the administration en- 
tirely, the responsibility to correct any wrongs and to see that any 
wrongs are corrected that may exist among the student body. King 
also employs the Discipline System, whereby offenses such as 
lying, stealing, and cheating are handled by a committee of mature 
and responsible students chosen by the Faculty and Administration

that forbidden? 

You should elect leaders who will stand up for what you want

Or are you a person who takes on responsibility and then 
doesn't carry it out? I don't know which is worse. To let a person 
down can be more disgusting than to say "no" in the first place. 
Our students today need to take responsibility and carry it out 
when they are supposed to. How can we have an effective student 
body when we depend on someone and he falls through?

at King, every' student is responsible for both his conduct and thi 
conduct of others. All of the Milligan students who parlicipatec 
in this conference feel that it was a good opportunity to give anc 
to receive worthwhile ideas for improving our schools. 

Thus, it is the aim of this Council, working with the facultj 
another and Administration, to lay the ground-work in preparation fo: 
placing into effect both the Honor and the Student Discipline Sys

function will be to plan and execute programs which will inforn 
students of international problems and of other lands.

Put them on your calendar! 




The flags wave, confetti flies everywhere, bands march end- 
lessly by, and the national hero waves vigorously from his open 
convertible, while the crowds roar that huge animal roar which 
seems to shatter every other emotion but enthusiasm. Here, ladies 
and gentlemen, you sec before you almost the last vestige of ex- 
pressed patriotism in American society. No longer do the flags 
appear tit every house on national holidays. The Fourth of July 
has almost completely lost the color and pageantry which used to 
characterize it. The country has become too sophisticated to thrill 
at the sight of the flag, too cynical to wholeheartedly cheer an 
idealistic expression of American goals. 

True, wc have sometimes lost our way because of our naivete 
or impulsiveness. True, corruption is present in both local and 
national government. True, our leadership in world affairs has 
often bogged down because of faulty judgment. However, the na- 
tion itself, the people as a whole, great and small, have never broken 
faith with the great motivating idea of freedom on which the 
country was established. America is a magnificent country and its 
basic motives, the ideals for which our men have fought and died, 
still exist, There is certainly a need for criticism and clean-up. 
Nevertheless, we have a great deal of which to be proud. We have- 
continually tried to strengthen the free world. At home our sys- 
tem of education, which provides twelve years of education for 
children from all backgrounds, is unparalled. Men can still live 
where they wish with their families around them. They can speak 
ns they please and spread their ideas via the various means of 

We shall soon be parents. Let's give our children the great 
gift of pride in their country, by educating them In notional tra- 
ditions and ideals. Enthusiasm for one's native land is not after 
all, so "corny."

Dear Miss Bliss. . . 

Hong Kong (I L.S.°): Helloo, all you sweeties, yesss. I'll bet you- 
all have been missing me, haven't you, yess? Well, I'm over here 
in the Orient just having a gay time, yess, watching them make 
products to ship to the U.S., like Asian Flu and other things, yesss. 
I have received some of your letters, though, and they seem just 
as bad as usual, yess. So, here are this month's victims, er, lucky 
little sweeties who get help, yesss. 
Dear Miss Bliss, 

I have a serious b-problem; you see besides the trouble I have 
b-talking, I feel like kind of a b-outsider since I'm from the b-North. 
My boyfriend is also a b-Yankee, and both of us have this b-prob- 
lem. Can you b-help us get accepted? Not many of the boys (or 
b-girls) seem to pay me much attention. Languishing Luellen 

Dear Languishing, 

Your problem is not all unique since I receive letters like 
yours all the time, yesss. It does seem, though, that the people 
of the South are often slow to appreciate a good thing, yesis 
(like me, yesss). You might try to make them think you are one 
of them: like changing your name a little to something south- 
ern-sounding, like Lulabelle, or Lu-lu. Also, a southern last 
name might help. Try something like Neck, or belter yet, Park. 
Then if you could simulate a little southern accent and a south- 
ern belle walk. I think that should do it nicely, yesss. As for 
your boyfriend, he may have a tougher lime of it, yesss. 

Miss Bliss 
Wasn't that advice just tops? Yess. Well, here's the next letter 
and I think you'll find it interesting, yesss. 
Dear Miss Bliss, 

My problem is that late last year I received a Bill from some- 
place in Illinois (Anderson, I think it was) and I don't know what 
to do with it (really, it's a him) since I'm so far distant from it 
(him). I worry all the time about this distance thing, what do you 
think I should do? Ravening Rachel 

Dear Ravening. 

You do have a problem there, and you'd best watch out be- 
cause a lol of worrying can make a wretch oul of you, yesss. 
My advice is to pick up some hobby to keep you busy, like 
picking apart dead cats or something. Also wilh a hobby like 
this you might be able to go to Illinois or Indiana or someplace 
laler and go to a school for dead-cat-pickers. Who knows? It's 
a possibility, yesss. Miss Bliss 

If you think that letter and its advice were pips (and you'd 
better, yess) wait till you read this next one, yess! 
Dear Miss Bliss, 

I really hate to write to you since I'm so shy, but I do have a 
problem that I need your help in solving. The girl I am going steady 
with is a real "chick," but we have a slight problem in dissimilarity 
of altitude. Really, we get along fine until she gets mad because I 
can't hear what she is saying. What do you suggest we do? 

Humbled (by genuflection) Hull 
Dear Humbled. 

First of all, I can see no reason why you need to feel so 
"uppily" about writing me, but that's all 'retta with me. I have 
heard of a good idea lhal someone stumbled upon to help solve 
your problem. Why don't you start carrying around some kind 
of a musical instrument (like an accordion or a guitar or some- 
thing) and then your little chicken can roost on top of il all 
the lime, yesss. Miss Bliss 

Well, that's about all for this month, yesss, but I'll surely be 
looking forward to receiving all you males next month — er, I mean 
mail, yesss. Right now I'm going out to look for a nice handsome 
hatchelman, yess. They say that the best-looking hatchetman around 
has gone to Milligan. Maybe you've noticed him — he has a little 
more size about him than most fellows, yessss. Well, bye-bye for 
now. Don't forget to keep your lipstick and after shave dry. yess. 

Love and slobbery kisses, 
Clementine Bliss.

Foollighters Present 
"The Glass Menagerie" 

On Friday, March 15, the Foot- 
lighters presented their second 
play of the year, "The Glass Me- 
nagerie" by Tennessee Williams. 
The cast included Jerry Carroll 
as "Tom," Nadyine Hayden as 
"Amanda," Bob Hull as "Jim," 
and Sandy McBane as "Laura." 
The play was directed by Mrs. 
George Parris. assisted by Mr. 
Dale Hudson. Helping her were 
Jack Webster, Bill Walters, Liz 
Ellis, Richard Gantz, Bob Karnes, 
Larry Tucker, Donna Haven, 
Karen Atha, and Mary Benscoter. 

Mrs. Parris also thanks Miss 
Turbeville and Miss Lawson for 
their support. Congratulations to 
all of you! 

The Rambler 

Milligan has had its share of spastics in the last month. Here 
are just a few: 

Mary B. dropping what into her salad at Dinty Moore's? 

Lois B. and her $15 nickname "Speedy," given to her by 
local officials. 

Jay Weitzel being Judy Henry's one-man powered car engine. 

The recently married Hardin man. The one we thought would 
never be caught. Congratulations — S.D. 

While Paul Shepherd was leading songs at the banquet for Dr. 
Todd, Annie helped him by waving her fork around and carefully 
plopped her turkey into her milk. 

Deep condolences go to all those students who took off to the 
North for "that" week-end. Did we see you lined up in front of an 
office in the Ad. Building? 

Sammy Cassel is to be commended on his driving skill and 
bravery. Not too many people have the nerve to back a car up on 
a cement retaining wall over a cliff. Of course, Al and Dave weren't 
helping matters. 

J. P. lost her sense of direction at the drive-in movie and went 
to get in the wrong car with a couple passionately interested in 
only themselves in it, (obviously not "our" students). "Are you 
sure you didn't move the car?" 

Thanks to a recent visitor from the Christian Theological 
Seminar (T.B.) one senior girl is up in the clouds. Nancy, he said 
he'd call at 10. On the intercom, not the phone! 

Where can you get a car with a four-barrel carburetor on it 
with just one screw holding it? Ask H.B. This one was free, yet. 

Does anybody have more car trouble than Karen Guion? And 
right after receiving the big diamond from Vaughn. That's what 
you get when you hit someone, Karen? 

Senior Boy And Girl Of The Month 

This month's Senior boy and 
girl are Joyce Smithson and 
Howard Henning. 

Howard Henning comes from 
Scotch Plains, New Jersey. His

Spring Sports Season Has Started 

Tennis Team Faces 
Rebuilding Year 

In the past years Milligan's 
tennis teams have been among 
the powers in the V.S.A.C. and 
the S.M.A.C. Last year's squad 
walked off with the top places 
in both these conferences, but 
we may have to settle for less 
this year as Tennessee Wesleyan 
is the preseason favorite. Grad- 
uation losses were great, as only 
three returning lettermen are on 
the courts this year. These men 
are Don McConkey, Bill Mor- 
rison, and Larry "Hawk" John- 
son. Several others are contend- 
ing for the remaining four spots 
on the varsity but the favorites 
are Randall Barnhart, Dave 
Fulks, Rusty Stevens, Ray Shep- 
pard, Danny Simmons, and Jim 

Coach "Doc" Thompson di- 
rected last year's squad to a 14 
win, 2 loss record as they cap- 
tured first place in the V.S.A.C. 
and the S.M.A.C. Bill Morrison 
took first place in the No. 2 di- 
vision of the V.S.A.C. and Don 
McConkey took second place in 
the No. 1 division. 

Although the racketeers might 
not be undefeated this year, they 
are proud of the fact that Mil- 
ligan's winniest team is finally 
getting uniforms. The squad's 
first match is April 5, against 
Emory and Henry.

Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, 
March 14-16, to the NAIA. Na- 
tional Association of Intercolle- 
giate Athletics, Tournament. The 
tournament was held at Blooms- 
burg State Teachers College. 
Representing Milligan College 
were: Rex Jackson, John Boyd, 
and Sam Bowers. There were 
forty-five schools represented. 

The funds for the trip were 
financed by the student body, 
the team collected around $130 for 
the trip, and wish to express 
their thanks for the support of 
the student body. 

The winner of the tournament 
was Lock Haven State Teachers 
College of Pennsylvania with 61 
points. A close contender was 
Bloomsburg State Teachers Col- 
lege with 60 points. 

From our team, John Boyd, a 
freshman with no tournament 
experience did an excellent job. 
Alt the wrestlers gained valuable 
experience and knowledge for 
the next year. Next year's tour- 
nament will be held in Spear- 
fish, South Dakota.

From reading back issues of the 
STAMPEDE, we are able to tcke 
a look at ~the various past May 

The college's 75th year was por- 
trayed through "Our Diamond 
Anniversary Album" in 1056, as 
Don Williams and Margaret Jane 
Smithson were crowned the king 
and queen. 

In 1957 "The Big Top" came to 
life. Duard Aldridge and Beriie 
Watson were the king and queen 
on that day. 

The king and queen of May in 
1958 were Sonny Smith and Rox- 
ann Henderson. Everyone attend- 
ing in 1958 went on a "Planta- 
tion Picnic" along with Jim Stid- 
ham and Barbara Tenney, the 
king and queen. 

In I960 the spotlight turned to 
Spain for "El Dia de Mayo" and 
saw new worlds conquered. Eric 
Critcs and Mildred Turner reign- 
ed over the festivities. 

1961 saw the coronation of Shei- 
la Ottinger and Ray Rensi. The 
theme was "Strolling Through, 
the Park." 

Last year the spotlight was on 
"A Young Man's Fancy" with 
Terry Black and Norma Faye 
Barker reigning over the festivi- 
ties. So, today, we add another 
chapter to the May Day tradition.

Iniernational Club 
Ends With Banquet 

On the evening of April 2*7. 
at the First Christian Church in 
i Johnson City, the Milligan In- 
ternational Club climaxed its 
1963 activities with their second 
annual Banquet. 

This banquet, like the former, 
offered the many varied foods 
representative of foreign lands. 
They were all prepared by Mil- 
liganites and certainly proved 
that one did not have to be a 
foreigner to prepare delicious 
foreign dishes. 

Guests included the President 
and members of the faculty. En- 
tertainment was supplied by 
Eunsik Park and Moon Sik 
Hwang, two Korean students, 
three Lebanese boys, two from 
ETSU and the club's President, 
Khassem Khalil, .- as well as 
Itshko Shigenob from Japan, 
and the Militiamen, folk singers 
from Johnson City. 

The President of the Club 
stated that the purpose of the 
banquet was to develop better 
understanding between our coun- 
tries. What better place than a 
dining table could one choose to 
do this? 

Freshman Tf eek Leaders Chosen 

The following have been chosen the team leaders for Fresh- : 
rr^n Week for 19£3: Jerry Carroll and Anita Murray, Carl Davis 
and Sandy Moore, Rex Jackson and- Marsha Bailey, Dave Knowles 
and Kay Lewis, Brian Murray and Nancy True, Ed Pierpont and 
Joyce Robb, Bruce Montgomery and Linda Starrett, Gary Jenkins 
and Janet Blowey, Jerry Taylor and Sylvia Lyon, and Wayne 
Hay and Nancy McCorkle. 

The Freshman Week Committee thanks everyone for the great 



The curtain is almost down on another school year, and it is 
time to evaluate what we have accomplished and to challenge our- 
selves for the future. 

It is good to look back and evaluate the experiences, both 
profitable and unprofitable. Has it been a successful year? We 
can see our mistakes and improve our future. Although we may 
have failed in some cases, we must profit from our errors and do 
better. Where we have made significant accomplishments, we can 
pride ourselves and resolve to continue in these ways. 

Look critically at your work. Does it measure up? We have 
a few weeks to go, including exams. Let's make these last weeks 
a success ! 

What about next year? Is there room for improvement? Each 
of us has to set high standards to try to achieve. Even if you 
aren't among those who are returning to Milligan College, you 
have a challenge to meet wherever you may be. Can you take 
that challenge and make something worthwhile out of it? Work- 
"Htjf to achieve goals is rewarding. Throughout life, we shall be 
meeting challenges. Let's build a strong "first-story" to the ex- 
periences which will build our '"Empire" of life. 


With Ibis last issue of the paper, I should like to thank each 
mem' .-r oi THE STAMPEDE staff who have worked and coop- 
erated with me in meeting deadlines. I certainly thank the staff 
for the extra effort of this issue. You have all helped immensely. 

New Majors And 
Minors To Be Oifered 

Next year will bring several 
innovations at Milligan College. 
In subject matter, two new ma- 
jors will be offered. Dr. Carl 
Shaw, the father of Karen Shaw, 
will head the Psychology De- 
partment and a major will be 
offered in Psychology. Mr. Joe 
Dampier will head the Depart- 
ment of Christian Education, the 
second major that will be of- 

A new minor will also be of- 
fered in Guidance and Coun- 
selling under Dr. Dennis Helsa- 
beck. We are glad to see the 
school making progress and ex- 
panding in subject matter. 

Thank you.

and oftimes funny memories. 
Here are a few of them: John 
Murphy will count his greatest 
moment as graduation after a 
variety of schools and a number 
of years. Sharlene Sanford especi- 
ally remembers pushing the green 
Ford. John Brown counts as a 
golden time the day he finally 
paid her bill . . . and Ken Fisher 
tells his memory in his own 
words, "one bright sunny day our 
illustrious Dean glared out the 
window of the dining hall. It 
seems that there was a Confeder- 
ate flag flying in the breeze from 
atop the library. The good Dean 
seemed to lose his southern spirit 
that day." Howard Henning re- 
counted being stuck 26 miles 
from nowhere in Cades Cove in 
the Smokies, having no alterna- 
tive but to walk and a 10:30 cur- 
few on the girls — it was 9:30 
p.m. Audrey Brooke Harmeyer 
counts among her great days, 
April 14, 1962, May 24, 1962, look- 
ing at mobile homes, weekend 
visits at Andy's house, and the 
day she gave flu shots to the en- 
tire student body. 

Chester Crump remembers Miss 
Jones' Civil War test, singing with 
the Havenaires and making their 
"tremendously great record." 
Donna Flick thinks back fondly 
over Freshman Week, her initia- 
tion into Alpha Psi Omega and 
being elected president of that so- 
ciety. Paul Shepard will never 
forget being elected an officer in 
his class, his first date with Mary, 
directing choir at the Founder's 
Banquet and being elected as- 
sistant choir director. Gary Bur- 
rell recounts the night that the 
inmates from the State Institu- 
tion broke into Pardee Hall, and 
Jerry Stansberry received a ten- 
nis racket for a neck tie. Larry 
Spangler thinks that graduation 
and getting out of comprehensive 
examinations will live among his 
golden moments. 

Judy Giles remembers the time 
she won a bet with Lois Benscot- 
er. The bet? Who would get a 
date with Jerry Frasure first. 
Fred Norris will never forget the 
day Carol Brooks agreed to marry 
him. Jirair Apissoghomian re- 
members fondly the first time his 
name was pronounced correctly. 
Frank Harrison recalls going over 
the falls in Dean Oakes' boat. 
Randall Barnhart still chuckles 
over the time he let the air out of 
Dean Oakes" tires. Warren Reavis 
thinks thai his comprehensive 
will be unforgettable. Joyce Keis 
still shudders when she thinks 
about the day that she rode the 
laundry cart down Sutton Hill. 
Alva Lee Sizemore remembers as 
her greatest moment the glorious 
time when she finally finished 
her Shakespeare bibliography. 
Carol Hudson plans to always re- 
call becoming an alumna. 

Dave Stuecher will always re- 
call choir lours. Ron Mounts will 
never forget his comprehensive 
exam. Myma Walls thinks back

Dear Miss Bliss . . . Wedding Plans 

Flash! Latest Neivs! 





New York (ILS) — The civilized world has been thrown into 
-an uproar today as news has leaked out that probably the world's 
most rcknowned personality was mysteriously aboard the recently- 
lost Atomic Sub Thresher. A reliable source in Paris informed 
the world today that none other than MISS CLEMENTINE BLISS 
was aboard the Thresher when it disappeared recently. 

It is believed that this charming personage of world fame was 
engaged in a little-publicized fashion test: the premiere usage un- 
der extreme conditions of the new Steve Reeves life jacket (pur- 
ported to be a vast improvement over the conventional Mae West). 
Miss Bliss was known the world over for her untiring efforts to 
help the causes of love and marriage, and she always said that a 
drowning man is a lost cause. Thus she apparently gave her life 
to try to preserve as many men as possible. 

She is probably best known for her column on love problems 
and through the years has been relied upon by many to help them 
through the rough spots of love. A few notables who have been 
benefited from her guidance and preserved their marriages because 
of it are: Elizabeth Taylor, Betty Hutton, Tommy Manville, and 
a former heavyweight champion of the world from Israel (com- 
monly known as Sampson). In addition to her splendid help to 
those married, she has aided young lovers the world over. A few 
of her recent benefactors have been: Caroline, Spencer Gervin, 
John Murphy, Turby, and the Pardee Hall gang. 

In recent years her column has been read in such well-known 
tabloids as: The Stampede. The Tormentor. (Tusculum), Merry 
Methodism (Tennessee Wesleyan). The Stampede: Staves and Steins 
(E. State), Mad, and the Millagriper — as a result of all of this she 
has undoubtedly helped countless millions. 

In looking back in memoriam of this great personality over 
her past accomplishments, it is hard to imagine how the world 
can ever recover from the loss of one so great. We need only bring 
to the minds of readers the world over a few names and her ac- 
complishments are shown to have been diverse and amazing. For 
example, she has supported and opposed some monumental changes 
in a small American college, but a few of the repercussions have 
been felt the world over. For instance, she has supported such 
things as: U-2 flights from the Sutton airport; power failures (four 
in 1962-53); love; Mrs. Ritz's new car; Dr. Walker's marriage; and 
faculty driving prohibitions. Some of the changes she has op- 
posed have been: Lights at Sutton; new clocks for dorm mothers; 
classes; another love column in The Stampede; parking regulations; 
trimming of Bush 13; boys from anywhere but Indiana; and fresh- 
man driving prohibitions. She has also remained conspicuously 
neutral on a few issues, loo; for instance, marriage, Bill Nice's elec- 
tion, Milligan movies, and eligible grls, to name just a few. 

Authorities, in trying to discover some clues as to her disap- 
pearance (foul play is suspected) have perused her 75-volume diary 
in the past few days and had a real riot; er, uh, I mean, found 
very interesting reading. It was discovered that some of her last 
efforts before her mysterious disappearance may have had some 
bearing on the case. Her most recent projects have been: elimi- 
nation of -tests in college, a new sewage disposal plant at Milligan, 
the dropping of golf as a major college sport, and adequate sup- 
plies for the dorms. II is believed that there may be some con- 
nection between these last projects and her disappearance. 

Several of the couples who 
have become engaged here at 
Milligan will be married this 
summer. Following is a list of 
the planned ceremonies: 

June 7— Mary Blount and 
Paul Shcpard will be married in 
Norfolk, Virginia. 


The Rambler 

Let's ramble back some years and see if we can get a view of 
these seniors when they were underclassmen. There have been 
some drastic changes in a few of them, (which is fortunate if 
you've noticed in the old yearbooks). 
Freshman Year: 

Dave Steucher, president of the class, with a long Princeton 

The Millitones (Pat. Alva Lee, and Kathy) and their little 
white collars. 

Our freshman cheerleader, Beverly. 

The leaky pipes, ^teamy, radiators; $nd- fajling. plaster in cj ■<■■ 
freshman homes: Pardee for the boys, and Hardin for the girls.. 

The Indiana choir trip for three 'fresnjncn; - ;. ] 

Sophomore Year: 

Judy's little -white jeep and transporting the 'Volunteers.' 

The Florida tour with the-choir during spring break, as sun- 
burned sophomores. 

Sanford Dutton on Dorm Council and the plot to blow up 

Twirp Week at the Speak-Easy with the Keynotes Cruising 
Down the River/ with Ann almost falling in. 
■ Pat and Kathy catching 'Daniel' in the lower fishpond. 

Junior Year: 

Paul and the Trumpet Trio. 

Sylvia, our class beauty. 

Randall and Larry with their dogfish. 

Donna at the steakfry with a raw steak (both of them). oGod 
cooks when we were juniors. 

This was the big year when the first rumors started about 
abolishing comprehensives. The big juniors looked forward to 
breezing through their last year of college. 

Senior Year: 

You've been in on the happenings this year. But for the in- 
formation of the seniors, here are a few of the people who started 
out with you but for one reason or another dropped out of Mil- 

These girls dropped out for a wonderful reason, they were 
lucky enough to get married early, before they had spent money 
on four years of college: Janie Aman, Jackie Arrowood, Carolyn 
Bushbaum. Charlene Christy, Hope Deyton, Norma Faulks, Janet 
Greene, DeAnn Gideon, Susan Hope, Jeanette King, Judy Knaggs, 
Kathy Meador. Sharon Walker, Linda Summers, Kathy Snapp, Rita 
Miller. Sharon Rash, Connie Shaier. 

Gerry Mabe, Micky Bertelson and Doug Saxton are in the 
Air Force. 

Dick Plymale is at West Point. 

Many students have transferred to complete their education 
elsewhere. For those of us who remained there are many mem- 
ories to leave with Milligan. There are also quite a few to take 
with us. 

When Graduation Day arrives and Alva Lee trips when she 
crosses the stage to get her diploma and Pat Wilbeck gets a blank 
one, the seniors will be gone. You unlucky people, underclassmen, 
who have years left without our humor, our sense of honesty and 
fair play, our radiant personalities, and our ecstatic presence in 
the cafeteria will long remember us, we hope. 

June 7 — Mary Ann Worrell married in College Park, Geor- 
and Mike Hartung will be mar- gia. 

ried in Danville, Indiana. June 9 — ( ) and 

June 8— Marilyn Knapp and Bedford A. Motley will be mar-

Arcardia, Indiana. see _

Easton Wayne Hunter will be Vaughn Ross will be married in

Terry Black will be married in 
Lancaster, Ohio.

and Fred Norris will be mar- 
ried in Atlanta, Georgia.

David Roberts will be married in 
Erwin, Tennessee.

and Jerry Taylor will be mar- 
ried in Bel Air, Maryland.

GiiTs Intramurals 

In the most exciting game of 
the year, the sophomore girls* 
basketball team defeated the 
freshmen girls to become 
"Champs" for the year. The 
keen competition between the 
teams and the rousing support 
of the fans helped to make a 
very enthusiastic game. Precious 
Brady was high scorer for the 
night with 21 points, and Connie 
Linton paced the losers with 19 
points. Several of the freshmen 
got theii revenge later when the 
All-Stars won over the soph- 
omores. Ploying their first 
game together the All-Stars 
jumped to a quick lead and 
managed to hold it for the rest 
of the game. Scoring for the 
game was All-Stars— 22; Soph- 
omores — 16. 

ftball has become 

a greater success than in prcvi-

Gain Seven Wins 

The racketeers of Milligan 
College are proudly sporting a 
7 won and loss record. The 
Buffs have easily rolled over 
every opponent so far except 
for Maryville whom they barely 
edged out 5-4. 

The team at the time of this 
writing is participating in the 
T. I. A, C. tournament and so 
personal records are unobtain- 
able; however, the top six mem- 
bers of the squad are Don Mc- 
Conkey, Bill Morrison, Larry 
Johnson, Danny Simmons, Ran- 
dall Barnhart, and Dave Fulks. 
The Herd has beaten Emory 
and Henry 6-3, Mars Hill 8-1, 
King 8-1, Maryville 5-4, L. M. U. 
9-0, Carson-Newman 7-2. and 
Tennessee Wesleyan 7-2. 

The opponent that will prob- 
ably be the most formidable in 
the coming V. S. A. C. tourna- 
ment is David Lipscomb. They 
are currently riding along with 
a record comparable to ours, and 
they are in the tough western 
section of the conference. 

The racketmen have one more 
home meet with Emory and 
Henry on May 6 and then ven- 
ture to Nashville for the V. S. 
A. C. tournament.

also show that many of the records in individual events have been

squad faced the tough Buc- 
caneers of ETSU, a formidable 
opponent. They took an early 
lead in the meet by capturing 
first place honors in three of the 
five field events — the high jump, 
shotput, and discus — but fell be- 
hind later in the afternoon dur- 
ing the track events. Thc Buffs 
took first places in the 440-yard 
dash, 880-yard dash, mile run, 2- 
mile run. high hurdles and mile 
relay, but lacked thc deciding 
2nd and 3rd places in most 
cases, which cost them the meet. 
Out of the 15 events, the Buffs 
took first in 9, State took only 
6. But when thc points were 
totaled, the Buffs fell short by 
6 points with a score of 65 to 
State's 71. However, the meet 
was a very good one as can be 
seen by the close score. 

In their next meet, at Lecs- 
McRae. thc Buffs piled up 10] 
points to rout the Bobcats by 
71 points. The Milligan thin- 
clads were anxious to moke up 
for their loss to ETSU thc pre- 
vious week, and the result was 
nn all-out winning effort. The 
Buffs swept the 440-yard dash. 
the mile, high jump, and thc 

In a home meet held at Eliza- 

Bob Kerrick— "Old Pro" 

bethton on April 20, Cumber- 
land proved to be too tough an 
opponent when they walked 
away from the Buffs with a 
score of 72 to 36. Cumberland 
led the field all afternoon, and 
try as they might, the Buffs just 
couldn't catch them. Thc best 
efforts of the day was mode by 
Eugene Woodby, who steamed 
around the track to win the 2- 
mile run with his best lime of 
10:22.8, and 120 yards ahead of 
Cumberland's nearest man. Cal 
Ross took the shotput and jave- 
lin. Gary Nicholson took the 
h;jrh jump, and Wayne Walters 
won thc 440-yard run. 

On April 23. the Buffs locked 
horns once again with ETSU in 
n meet very similar to their first 
encounter. The Buffs enme out 
11 points shy and had to bow to 
thc Buccaneers 71 to 60, The 
Buffs took 8 events and ETSU 
took 7. This apparent lack of 
depth cost Milligan its second 
defeat at thc hands of Stale. In 
the Buffs' winning events. Andy 

Lowe won the discus, Gary 
Nicholson the high jump. Jay 
Weitzel the mile. Cal Ross the 
shotput, Eugene Woodby the 2- 
mile run, Larry Patterson the 
javelin, Wayne Walters the 440- 
yard dash, and the team of Ar- 
nold, Moulder. Weitzel, and 
Walters won the mile relay. 

Last Saturday. Coach Walk- 
er's speedsters swept a trian- 
gular track meet with Emory and 
Henry and Lees-McRao in their 
best showing of the year. The 
Buffs just seemed to have had 
what it takes, for they almost 
monopolized possession of the 
first places. Out of 15 events, 
thry took all but 2 to rack up 
a towering 193 points to Emory 
and Henry's 33 and : ■ 
Hae's 2^. The top performer of 
the day was Cal Ross, who set a 
new record in the shotput with a 
heave of 49" 2", one of the long- 
■.■roi\!cd in this area. 
Cal has been one of the team's 
strong point,*, since he is undo* 
featcd in the shotput for the past

Zimmers Open 
Concert Season 

Milligan College Concert 
Series opened October 7, 1963, 
with Robert and Betty Zimmcr 
of the Indianapolis Symphony 

The Zimmers are not 
strangers to the Milligan 
campus. Last week's perfor- 
mance was the fifth visit here 
for thorn. They found our 
student body and faculty very 
friendly and they expressed de- 
light at their repeated visits 
to Milligan. Both of the Zim- 
mers teach at Jordan Con- 
servatory of Music in Indiana- 
polls, Indiana. Mrs. Zimmer 
studied at Sherwood Musk 
School in Chicago Illinois and 
Mr. Zimmer studied privately 
with Emil Bouillct in |-l. Wayne, 

In concert Mr. Zimmer uses 
a rnrc violin made in Parma, 
Italy. It wns made hy J. It. 
Guadagninl In 1769. 

Mr. Zimmer obtained it from 
the concert master of the

consisted of: La Folia (Corelli- 
Kreisler), Sonata in D, k. 306 
(Mozart), Sonata No. 2 In A 
(Brahms, op. 100), and Suite 
Itallenne (Igor Stravinsky). 

Mrs. Zirnmer Indicated that 
college students of today are 
much more appreciative of 
classical music than a few years 

When asked whether folk 
music, progressive jazz, rock 
and roll, etc.. have a place In 
our music tradition, Mr. Zim- 
mer replied, "Folk music de- 
finitely Is a part of our music 
language, but I'm not so sure 
about the othersl" 

The next presentation in the 
concert series will be The 
Rondaliers. a male trio, on 
November 15,' 1963. 

LADIES, this is the week 
for which we have been waiting! 
The male is under our control. 
After 51 weeks of being dominat- 
ed, we are now the dominators. 
We may have to pay the bills 
but Wc choose our dates and 
make tne advances. 

Our week of power started 
Monday at 12:01. On Monday 
evening the ladies escorted 
their dates to a pinlc on the 
banks of Buffalo Creek. Tues- 
day was activity night. The ' 
Student - Faculty basketball 
game and prayer meeting were 
held Wednesday. Thisevening's 
speak - easy will be the high 
light of ^he week. Come dres- 
sed in garb of the "roaring" 
twenties. Friday's hayrlde and 
Saturday's skating party and 
movie promise to be fun also. 

Offenders will be tried by a 
court consisting of Doug White 
as the judge, Sonny "Rose" 
Hilton as prosescutor and Ron 
Ellis as defending attorney. 
Doug Hyder and Sheila Tressler 
serve as arresting officers. 

"Are you sure your dink is two fingers above your eyebrows?" 
"Hey. you only gave me seventy - five points for washing your 
car!" These were the familiar cries of weary' freshmen during 
Freshman Week which began September 13. 

The first morning, each freshman after being assigned to a 
team, received his cherished dink and name button. The follow- 
ing days were filled with activities from freshman orientation 
to a "wet" tour of the campus. The fun really began Tuesday. 
September 17, when Wakandagl started the first day was designated 
Button Day. 

On thisday, freshmenwereocn- 
tinually chided by upper - 
ciassman for having lost their 
buttons. At the end of Button 
Day, every freshman on campus 
was beginning to have doubts 
as to whether It was "always 
a lovely day at Milligan." 

Wednesday, September 18, all 
freshmen were perplexed by a 
fellow named Al. When one 
freshman was asked where Al 
was, she replied very seriously 
that she didn't know anyone 
named Al. 

Still another girl who has a 
brother named Al on campus 
answered thai she thought Al 
was at Hardin. These answers, 
while quite plausible to the 
freshmen, were unacceptable 
to the upper - classmen. 

Sleep obviously wasn't on the 
program during Freshman 
Week, Every free moment was 
spent Ironing, polishing shoes, 
or washing cars. The upper - 
classmen girls, wanting to as- 
certain that freshmen were in 
tune for Alma Mater Day. 
aroused all freshmen girls 
Wednesday night to rehearse. 

Probably the most annoying 
problem to freshmen was the 
little orange hat called a dink. 
A dink was that "orange thing" 
that stretched out of shape after 
the campus tour, the thing that 
was never designed lor show 
wear, basketball games, or a 
in, hi ap 

Supplementing the dink was 
the name button. This button 
could never be found in time of 
need, but it was always there 
to snag a shirt or blouse. 
Obviously, It wasn't made to be 
worn on pajamas, as the catch 
certainly wasn't stick proof. 
Throughout the week, visitors 
on campus may have been 
startled to see droves of stu- 
dents flying down Sutton hill. 
These were merely freshmen 
returning for forgotten name 

Climaxing Freshman Week 
was the Matriculation Cere- 
mony held at Sutton Hall, Thurs- 
day the l^th. A week of fun, 
frustration, and excitement had 
come to an end and the frosh 
were official members ol the 
Milligan College family.

'. . . One Nation, Under God . . ." 

- The Pledge of Allegiance 

Americans have been favored above all people. We live on 
an island of abundance surrounded by a sea of poverty and fear. 
Why are we so blessed when half the world never knows freedom 
from hunger? Can it be because our nation was founded as a 
Christian nation with faith in Jesus Christ? 

Of the first 119 colleges and universities In our land, 104 were 
established in the name of Jesus Christ for the purpose of per- 
petuating the Christian faith. These included Harvard. Yale, 
Princeton, Dartmouth, William and Mary, and Rutgers. 

For decades the trend in education has been to relegate Christ 
and our Christian heritage to obscurity. Men in high places 
have ridiculed our "puitanlcal" past. Manhasbecome the ultimate, 
- an end in himself. 

In ten years our crime rate has Increased 97%. We have 6 
million alcoholics. Psychiatrists tell us that it is safe to assume 
that 80% of the citizens of our country have entertained ideas 
of suicide. 

We have harnessed the atom and orbited the earth, yet the 
passions of men remain unbridled. Through the process of elimina- 
tion, we are returning to God. nothing else has worked. 

Let us begin on the campus, in the classroom, on the athletic 
field, in student government, and in every area of our lives to 
return Christ to his place of authority.

vaccine clinic was held on the 
Milllgan campus. 

The vaccine administered to

even more effective than the 
Salk innoculatlons. 

The clinics are a community 
project sponsored by the Civlian 
Club. Milllgan College and 
Happy Valley families are in- 
vited to participate.

Bold is the description for 
the new fall fashions. Strong 
and powerful lines have been 
uniquely developed to transform 
the popular pastels of two or 
three years ago. Emphasis 
is now centered around a solid 
mass by using dark colors 
simple plaids and checks and 
wide stripes. 

Styles for college girls have 
several variations. The "A" 
shaped dress and shift are ex- 
cellent "all occasion dresses" 
and can be dressed up or down 

Wrap-a-round skirts of solid 
colors are perfect for the fall 
season. A dark print or pin- 
striped shirt is part of the en- 
semble. Shoes vary from wel- 
juns to stovepipe boots. Dark 
colored knee socks are some- 
time added to help give that 
"sporty" look. 

Men have never been dressed 
as well before. Boldness is 
also popular among mens' 
fashions but they have their 
more reserved styles too. 

Milllgan welcomes ten faculty members, three student per- 
sonnel advisors, and one staff member to its ranks this school 

The following personality sketches include the training, interests, 
families and first impressions of the additions to the Milllgan 


Blazers andMadrascoatsare 
also on the scene, accented by 
pastel or pin-striped shirts 
plus, the new solid dark shirts 
with matching socks and of 
course weejuns. 

Hair styles play an important 
part in fashions, too. The 
square cut or "kid look" is 
popular among girls and for the 
college man it's the Prince- 
ton style. Both type work 
well with today's fashions be- 
cause of the unity of line which 
is important in any good design. 

Fashions are always changing 
but the people make them popu- 
lar. Every year something 
new Is presented to the public 
but only a few styles pass 
the critical eye of American 
people. This year the fashions 
have an alertness about them 
that has never been captured 
before. The fall fashions have 
caught hold and are here to 
stay - till next fall.

Parties Begin 

One of the most revered of 
traditions among the senior 
girls of Mllllgan has not been 
lost by the class of '64. This 
tradition would, of course, be 
the Senior Debutante's Parties. 
As In past years, a committee 
has been formed to set up plans 
for those beautiful dolls, our

mittee from Pardee are Lynda 
Starrcti and Charlotte Ely, and 
sution representatives are

ground to serve in the posi-

ing part lnlntra-mural basket- 

We wish both of these seniors 
success when they graduate. 


Elghry new students took part 
in this year's Freshman Week 
activities. It was time replete 
with the traditional, tests, 
meetings and work. 

Although the length of the 
week was curtailed by two days, 
the teams did a grand job of 
getting everything done. 

"Wakandagi." a term well 
chosen for this group's ac- 
tivities, was climaxed with the 
annual "Tug - o - War across 
Buffalo Creek. Again the upper- 
classmen stayed dry. In the 
evening of the same day Matri- 
culation was held in Sutton Hall, 
followed by a torch parade to 
Anglln Field. There, each 
Freshman, after removing his 
"dink," symbolized his becom- 
ing a member of the Mllllgan 
family by throwing his torch 
into the gigantic bonfire. 

On behalf of the Freshman 
Week Staff, 1 would like to say. 
thank you "Class of 67" for 
being so Industrious and 

cooperative. We are proud 
to have assisted you in you 
first week at Mllllgan.

Rules Are Rules 


Incoming Freshmen are seemingly astounded by the abundance 
of rules and regulations which govern our campus life. Much 
grumbling can be overheard about the seeming narrow mind- 
edness of the administration. In order to realize the realized 
system under which we actually exist, I have delved back into 
the records of the past for a comparison of regulations then 
and now. 

In the 1920's, Mllllgan was 
described as quite a healthy 
spot. It Is pictured thusly, 
"Milligan College has an eleva- 
tion of 1740 feet -- quite above 
the malaria level. ' ' We' re 
awfully glad about that, aren't 

The 1923 catalogue also 
states. "The Young Women 
of the college may receive calls 
from young men once each week 
on Sunday afternoon from three 
to five. On each evening from 
six to six-thirty the men are 
invited to the girl's dorm 
to play games — this is not 
a recognized calling time," 

In order to clarify 'the 
position of the school the fol- 
lowing was written, "Theyoung 
men are under no circum- 
stances to loiter about the girl's 
dormitory or molest the young 
women in their play, recrea- 
tion, or study. At all times 
a perfectly straight - forward 
and business - like attitude 
must prevail," 

Dress was to be modest and 
inconspicuous. "All evening 
dresses must have approxi- 
mately high necks and elbow 
sleeves. Girls received de- 
merits for skirts deemed too 
far above the ankles by the 
President's wife and were ad- 
vised to sew on ruffles and thus 
protect their respectability.

lowed to go to town at any 
time unchaperoned. Single 
dates were not allowed. Uni- 
maginable as it seems, borrow- 
ing and lending were banned. 
Meals. including breakfast, 
were compulsory. 

Girls received demerits for: 
walking from C. E. with boys, 
selling apples during study 
hours, car riding on Sundays, 
lingering in the dining room, 
having socks off at a game, 
feasting after the lights were 
out, and social irregularities. 

One couple had their con-

Dea n Howell's A Haz ard of New 
Fortunes is an excellent 

example of the early Ameri- 
can development of the realis- 
tic schools. Howells, altho 
never considered a masterful 
author, was the patron of many 
late great writers of the 19th 
century. His book although 
panned as prosaic gives an in- 
teresting Insight Into life in New 
York City during the late nine- 
teenth centry. 

Lawrence Durrell's Alexan- 
dria Quartet composed of 
Balthazar. Mountollvc. Cl ea, 
and JustlncT Is a fascinating 
study in twentieth century sym- 
bolism. Critics have compared 
this major work with T. S. 
Eliot's Wasteland. Alexandria.

ter of the story, is cxoiically 
beautifully recreated and puri- 
fied through the imagination of a

Harriers Win First Meet 

The Buffs started out in defens 
by downing Mars Hill 19-42, with 
ing the race. 

Mars Hill started strong by 
and second place. 

Eugene Woodby and Bill Judd 
moved in front with half the dis- 
tance to go. The battle then 
began between Woodby and Judd. 
Woodby held strong until the end 
when judd poured it on to pass 
Woodby in the final stretch. 
Judd's winning time was 18:32 
with Woodby ,03 off the pace at 
18:35. Bill Cornelius finished 
a strong third only .16 of a se- 
cond behind Judd. 

Ron Whitmore placed forth 
and Bill Leonard fifth for Mars 
Hill. Milligan then took the 
following four places: 
Wayne Walters. 6th; 
Charlie Dobson, 7th; 
Dave Herndon, 8th; and [ay 
"Razzle Dazzle" Weltzel. 9th. 
Mars HU1 rounded the scoring 
with John Fleming in 10th place.

up the good work.

This year the sports page will present a "Prediction Comer" 
and opinion column. We shall attempt to give predictions and 
views of every Milligan athletic contest. The columns will be 
opened to various students of the campus. We may be sticking 
our necks out, but this should create Interest. At the end of 
each season we shall see how we have come out. 

In addition to this column we shall have a column for the out- 
standing athlete of the past week. We shall comment on his out- 
standing performance of the week and the reasons for our selection. 

Watch for many interesting articles in the coming issues. 

Our first prediction of the year deals with the Cross-Country 
team. Milligan now has the prestige as Cross - Country Champs 
and all opposing teams will be after that prestige. Mars Hill, 
now a four-year school, was the first to fall in defeat, 

Milligan goes to Lees McRae, Ashville Biltmore, and Win- 
gate. Lees McRae will be the strongest of the 3. Evidence shows 
they defeated Biltmore 15-40. But Milligan is deep in experience 
and talent, which we believe will keep them on top. 

Student Body Selects Cheerleaders 

Cheerleaders were chosen to represent Milligan at its inter- 
collegiate athletic contests last Monday, October 7th in the 
Auditorium. The 15 finalists participated in both group and single 
cheering. The seven finalists included five regulars Diane Hub- 
bard, Dixie Page, Linda Rogers, Rita Sue Farmer, and Carolyn 
Berg; and two alternates Harriett Barnes and Susan Jacoby.

rovia, Indiana. Like Dixie, 
she is In pre-law and plans to 
do her graduate work at Indiana 
University. She cheered one 
year In high school. Linda

eyes. Her major is social 
studies and she plans to teach 
on the elementary level. She 
has cheered for seven years 
now and ought to be well ver- 
sed in this activity. Diane is fond

She likes her man, apples, and 
basketball more than anything. 

Carolyn Berg. Twenty year 
old Junior from Ceff. Illinois

Loan System Planned 
For Intramurals 

It's a big year for Intramuralsl The Intramural Council has 
planned many individual and team activities for all types of In- 
terest. No matter what the ability or desire, there is a sport for 
you. Current sports include; Men's football, volleyball, and 
tennis, while the girls are engaging in volleyball. These sports 
are either in full swing or just beginning. 

Through Coach Stout's ef- -^ _^^_^-^_ _ 
forts, the Intramural Council 

is obtaining at long last their R © b U I 1 U I n Q YeOT 
own equipment room, filledwlth 
new equipment. The council 
then is opening this room for 
you the students. It will be 
set up as a Loan System in 
which a student will present 
and check his Milligan Identi- 
fication card at the equipment 
room door. He then may re- 
ceive any equipment he desires. 
Coach Stout says, "Let's wear 
it out, gang." 

An Award System is set up 
for all those who participated 
and excel in the Intramural 
program. Points are recorded 
for each time for participants 
and for all the different acti- 
vities. Upon the completion of 
the year the points are ac- 
cumulated and different awards 
are given for the various points. 

Coach Stout states that the in- 
tramural sports at Milligan are 
designed to afford ALL stu- 
dents, regardless of ability or 
lack of it, the opportunity to 
compete In a wholesome sport 
as a member of a team. "It 
is certain that you, once you 
have an understanding of the 
practical workings and possi- 
bilities of our broad program, 
will be in sympathy with It." 

The Intramural program not 
only provides the whole student 
body with wholesome recreation 
and exercise but furnishes a 
substantial backbone lor the 
older system ofheartllysports. 

For Tennis 

by Tom Barnard 

Coach "Doc" Thompson and 
the Milligan net men face a 
rebuilding season this year af- 
ter three consecutive champ- 
ionship teams. The graduation 
of Randall Barnhart, Don Mc- 
Conkey, and Larry "Hawk" 
Johnson has left the team weak 
in many positions. 

Bill Morrison (Captain), Dan- 
ny Simmons, Dave Fulks, and 
Jim Jesse are returning letter- 
men with Bob Dabney and BUI 
Blanch! playing well in the lower 
positions. The "B" team shows 
great potential but is weak in 

The team is currently hold- 
ing fall practice and is on the 
courts Monday thru Friday at 
3:30 PM. There will be two 
fall exhibition matches in the 
near future with King College 
of Bristol. 

Buffs Out To 



Once again it is that time of 
the year when you can see boys 
running up and down the many 
hills of the campus in their 
bright orange sweat suits. If 
you happened to be studying 
early in the mornings last week, 
you might have seen a few of 
the harriers jogging down the 
road at 6 A. M, 

The Buff runners will be out 
this year to defend their 
V. S. A. C. Cross - country 
championship which they won at 
Carson Newman last year by 
edging out Union University of 
Jackson, Tennessee. TheBuffs 
will have five returning lener- 
men this year, among those are: 
Eugene Woodby, Sophomore, 
who won the conference meet 
last year; Bill Cornelius Junior, 
who finished fourth in the con- 
ference; Dave Hemdon, Senior, 
who placed fifth in the V. S.- 
A. C.; Jay Weitzel, junior, who 
broke the 880-yard dash record 
in the conference track meet 
last spring; and Wayne Wal- 
ters, junior. The two freshmen 
who are expected to give the 
team a great help this season 
are Bill Judd and Charles Dob- 

For those spectators who are 
not quite familiar with cross- 
country, the distance the har- 
riers run Is three and one - 
half miles. 

This year Milligan will host 
the conference meet on Nov. 9. 
On November 23, the Buffs will 
journey to an Invitational meet 
at Cumberland College in Ken- 
tucky, with several of the Ohio 
Valley Conference teams being 
represented. Coach Duard 
Walker will again be the man 
who will put the boys through 
their rugged pace. Your sup- 
port of the harriers will be 
greatly appreciated by the Buff 

"Doc" Thompson hopes that 
the team will mature quickly 
when spring rolls around and 
this Is part of the reason for 
fall practice. 

"There Is no reason to count 
us out," says Bill Morrison, 
"if we are strong in the low- 
er positions, we will win our 
share of matches," 

If our past record means 
anything, Bill is a man of under- 
statement. The tennis team 
has the best overall record of 
any sport at Milligan. 

She too has had no cheering 
experience but plenty of talent. 
Harriett's major Is psychology. 
She likes watching basketball 
and water sklng. 

Susan Jacoby, a freshman 
from Crown Point, Indiana, Is 
majoring In social studies and 
plans to be a social worker. 
She has brown hair and eyes.

"Unchained Melody" of free lime,

The first nine weeks of the 
1963-64 record have spun merrily 
along to the tune of Orientation, 
Registration, Christian Emphasis 
Week, Twirp Week, and Fall 

The tempo of our year's record 
has moved from the animated 
beat of Wakandagi to the ex- 
temporaneous staccato of Regis- 
tration to the dignified strains of 
the campus revival to the ro- 
mantic crescendo of Twirp Week 
to the joyous rest of Fail Break. 

Ah, college has been a charmed 
melody. But all needles must 
finally revolve off the record and 
with a stunning, staggering 
shriek, the first movement of the 
1963-64 record ends in the un- 
nerving realization of MID- 

Mid-terms — the blind horror of 
the freshmen, the conscious hor- 
ror of the upperclassmen — are 
upon us. Notebooks, term papers, 
outside readings are due. 

Lock the door. Bring out the 
coffee. Open the window. Don't 
even look at that comfy bed. Oh, 
me; oh, my — where has the time 

Maybe the minutes, hours, days, 
and weeks have gone Strolling up 
and down that "'sunny side" of 
college life, blissfully unaware of 
the drudgeries of notebooks, term 
papers, and outside readings — 
and mid-terms. Maybe the time 
has gone into notebooks, 
pcrs, outside readings, and you're 
ready for mid-terms. Lucky you! 
In any case, the STAMPEDE 
sends to you the best for mid- 
term success and the deepest of 
mid-term sympathies.

Letters to the Editor 

1 Before we were, who through this country came? 
Whose arc these flares and signals in the night? 
Whose seal is on the darkness and the light? 
Whose symbol on the shadow and the flame? 
The constellations in their song proclaim 
Illustrious authorship: on depth and height 
His proud armorial bearings are in sight; 
Royal insignia reveal His name. 
All beauty bears His signet and His crest. 
Upon the mountains and the sunrise shore 
His sign is set, and on the wild rose west. 
The evening star is His bright semaphore. 
All glories to His glory must attest. 
-Acknowledging His sovereign signature. 

Archibald' Rurtledge 

This autumn has been indelibly etched in the memories of 
many Milligan students — perhaps particularly the freshmen. It 
seems at times almost impossible to bear the beauty of wooded hills 
and valleys which stand in sharp relief to the unbelievably blue 
sky. The bright yellow and searingly red masses of color beckon 
all but the most callous to be bewitched by them. Soon the soft 
chill rains will begin to fall and we shall be completely caught up 
on the rigors of early winter, but we shall not forget the slow, 
hazy days of October. They, by their very existence, reaffirm our 
.faith in a benevolent and loving Creator. 


It is our desire to have more 
students express their views 
through the paper. We, the edi- 
tors, have chosen two topics on 
which we would like to get your 
reactions. If you feel strongly 
about one topic or the other, con- 
tact either the editors or Nancy 
McCorkle, Feature Editor. 

At a recent conference of 
prominent newspapermen from 
throughout the country, ft was 
overwhelmingly decided that cen- 
sorship in the United States is 
now and will become more and 
more stringent. In America, cen- 
sorship extends not only tff tEte 
newspapers but to the theater, 
movies, literature, and school 
textbooks. Do you believe that 
censorship is contrary to Ameri- 
can democracy? Are censors" 
necessary to check growing im> 
morality? Axe you willing to 
have your reading material or 
entertainment approved by a city 
commit tee or other group witrr 
the same function? Does censor- 
ship protect our children from' 
unwholesome influences? 

In 1964,. the United States will 
elect a new president. This office 
is conceded to be the most pow- 
erful in tEte world. Many of us 
have just reached voting age and 
thus ought to be more interested 
than ever in America's political 
situation. The Republican nomi- 
nation is being eagerly fought

Collegians Speak is a new column in the STAMPEDE. 
Talented students in all areas of study at Milligan College will 
be asked by the editors to express their viewpoints on any sub- 
ject they desire. In this initiatory column, Mr. BUI Eaton, 
junior ministerial student from Faller, Kansas, demonstrates 
that collegians do have something to say. 

There is something about college life which is unsurpassed in 
any institution. And when this group is dedicated to the collective 
effort of Christian culture, it becomes much more unique and un-

Dear Editor, 

There has been brought to the attention of some members of 
this Sfhool a matter that concerns each of us as students and future 
Sramera of the society in which we live. The matter is this: the 
problem of prayer in the public school systems. Many of us have 
skimmed over this thing lightly, leaving it solely up to others, but 
now I believe that our attention should be directed toward this 
situation that we may ponder upon it and then form opinions that 
are based upon fact, not fantasy. 

This is only one example of our current trend of thought. "Let 
the other person make the decisions." We, as young people, have 
been caught up in the eat, drink, and be merry philosophy until 
we have incorporated it into ourselves. We have become so filled 
on "nothingness" that we have no room for depth. We have fed 
our enormous appetites with milk, when we should have contented 
ourselves with nothing less than solid meat. 

We have never faced a common problem necessitating all of 
our resources, nor have we attempted to better our relations with 
our fellow man. We have become complacent in the fullness of 
nothingness. It is the purpose of this school to train and to mold 
minds that they may see issues, not one-sidedly but opon-mindcdly,

Library: Students 
Second Home 

For many students, the library 
is a second home. Daily assign- 
ments, outside readings, and 
term papers make the library an 
essential part of college life. Using 
our library facilities can be en- 
joyable as well as profitable if 
everyone cooperates and obeys 
the rules that have been made 
for the good of the student body. 

Our library has a wide selec- 
tion of reference books and mag- 
azines. These materials are not 
to be taken from the reading 
room at any time. Other books 
are available on open stacks and 
can be checked out for two-week 
periods. When professors have 
books on the reserve shelf, stu- 
dents may check them out from 
the main circulation desk for two 
hours, or longer if the book is 
not in demand. Reserve books 
may be taken from the library 
one half-hour before the library 
closes, and are due back when 
the library opens on the follow- 
ing day. A fine of five cents per 
hour is charged for every hour 
they are overdue. 

There is no limit to the num- 
ber of books a student may check 
out, and a book may be renewed 
if no one has called for it. A 
student may renew a book with- 
out bringing it to the circulation 
desk, provided he can give the 
librarian the author and call num- 
ber. A "fine" list is posted at 
all tunes, both in the library and

We're not sure which — or 
should we say witch — but every- 
one had a great time at the 
Senior Hallowe'en party last 

The decorations were — well, 
they were — let's just say that 
they were "outdoorsy" to say the 
least. Everyone who was in the 
SUB can varify what we say if 
they'll recall how the two nature 
boys of the class, Jerry Carroll 
and Bruce Montgomery, unloaded 
a whole truck-load of fodder and 
pumpkins into the basement. All 
their preparations did lend to the 
atmosphere, though. As a matter 
of fact, they must have had some 
pack rats in that fodder, because 
during the evening, someone or 
something made off with a gallon 
jug of cider. We hope they choke. 
Diane Hubbard and Margie 
Reed, who were in charge of 
games and entertainment, had a 
fun evening planned. Mrs. Hob- 
son was mistress of ceremonies, 
and Mr. Montgomery helped to 
judge the costumes. Some of the 
prizes awarded went to Arbeth 
"Toothless" Reitmayer for most 
original; Marsha "Kate Smith" 
Bailey for most in character; and 
Terri Cotton for most attractive. 
The class was very enlightened 
as Diane looked into the future 
and predicted what was to come 
for many of the class members. 
You'll all be surprised to find out 
that Ralph Wheeler will be one 
of the first in our class to become 

Joan "Quiz Kid" Cunningham 
won the prize for unscrambling 

the most words in a given time 
period. The prizes, by the way, 
were priceless treasures that will 
be cherished by their recipients. 

Gary Nicholson, Jerry Carroll, 
and Lynda Starrett provided en- 
tertainment (?) for the evening. 
At least, they took up time on 
Ihe program. 

Several of the class took part 
in bobbing for apples. Judging 
from the color of the water after 
some members participated, we 
would say it was the first time 
in a long lime that many faces 
had come in contact with water. 

The party closed with refresh- 
ments of cider and doughnuts. 

Seriously, we think all who at- 
tended had a wonderful time, and 
we want to thank all who worked 
so hard to make the evening a 
success. We urge all the seniors 
lo watch for announcements of 
our next get together and plan to 


The Sophomore Class has se- 
lected the tentative project of 
adequately lighting the bridge en- 
trance to the campus. To finance 
this improvement project, the 
class is investigating the possi- 
bility of buying the rights to the 
Saturday-night Milligan Movie

Unity is important in any 
group or organization and our 
Freshman Class is no exception. 
The officers elected in September 
hope to have a successful, re- 
warding, and memorable year. 
This can be accomplished if we 
become a part of Milligan Col- 
lege as a class, and not just as 
a mass of students. 

Under the guidance of Dr. Hel- 
sabeck. the new officers are 
ready to put the year in full 

swing. The officers working with 
Dr. Helsabeck are Rick Fulk, 
president; Ed Springman, vice- 
president; Kay McCalister, sec- 
retary; Rex Roth, treasurer; and 
Doug Haven, chaplain. Student 
council representatives are Mar- 
garet Walker and Les Bain. 

The first two committees 
formed by our class are the 
Founder's Day Committee and 
the Major Project Committee. 
Members of these committees are 
ready and capable of accepting 
the responsibility placed upon 
them. Any help or suggestions 
will be graciously accepted. 

Remember, freshmen, this is 
your class and it will be a good 
year only if you want it to be.

In their first meeting, they dis- 
cussed the various areas in which 
they will serve this year. Their 
meetings will consist of discus- 
sions on the mission field, the 
church secretary, the minister's 
wife, and great women in the 
Brotherhood. Their projects will 
take them to the Children's Home 
in Elizabethton, the Children's 
Home in Grundy, and various 
area churches. They have already 
gone to the Home in Elizabeth- 
ton to entertain the children with 
a Hallowe'en party. 

On November 16, they are 
planning a bake sale which will 
serve to support their many proj- 
ects. The baked goods will be 
sold in Sutton lobby during 

The friendly atmosphere and 
the natural beauty of the campus 
are the most impressive char- 
acteristics of Milligan to many 
students who transferred here 
this fall. A survey of several 
new Milliganiles revealed inter- 
esting and varied observations of 
the college. 

Coming to "Tennessee's fair 
eastern mountains" from all over 
the United States and from 
across the ocean, the students 
were deeply impressed with the 
beauty, the warmth, the serenity 
of the college. 

Steve Everroad from Hanover 
College in Indiana appreciates the 
feeling of a true college family. 
He observed that Milligan is 
more conservative, offers more 
opportunities for religious serv- 
ice, and is not split by fraternity- 
sorority groups. 

A sophomore from Tri-State 
College. Thad Gordon, also notes 
the good family closeness rather

Anita is a social studies major 
and plans to be an elementary 
toucher. Last year she was editor 
of the STAMPEDE and this year 
is co-editor of the Buffalo. She 
has many likes, some of which 
are Dr. Pepper's elephant jokes, 
the singing of Robert Goulet, the 
color brown, reading, and sew- 
ing. Oddly enough, her favorite 
"like" is Jerry Cnrroll. Anita says 
she's very tidy on Tuesday nights 
and doesn't like to do her laun- 
dry, but she can spend hours 
over a BRIDE magazine. Anita's 
plans for the future center around 
a day in August when she will 
become Mrs. Jerry Carroll. 

Jerry Carroll, son of Mr. and 
Mrs. William Carroll of Indian- 

apolis, is the senior boy of the 
month. One of those Taylor House 
boys and a math major, Jerry 
is one of the most active fellows 
on campus. At the present time, 
he's occupied by the Senior Class 
play, "Cheaper by the Dozen," 
He is playing a part, as well as 
co-directing the play. 

The Senior Class elected Jerry 
to serve as their representative 
in the Student Council. He serves 
the Council as treasurer and as 
head of the Social Life Commit- 
tee. Jerry likes watermelonrind 
pickles, the color cranberry, talk- 
ing, drama, and most of all, 
Anita, The Lord richly blessed 
Jerry with a beautiful voice 
which he uses at every oppor- 
tunity, the most prevalent use at 
present being the cry of "trays" 
from the kitchen. As a very tal- 
ented and personable fellow — 
Jerry Carroll — we salute you as 
Senior Boy of the Month.

Begins Activities 

Milligan's International Club 
has grown in membership and in 
influence on the campus. Foreign 
students band together in com- 
mon appreciation of their differ- 
ing cultures. Their enthusiasm 
has transmitted itself to several 
of the regular students and the 
annual banquet has become one 
of Milligan's most popular social 
events. The club tries to have a 
guest speaker at each meeting. 

Drs. Wetzel and Shaw are the 
faculty sponsors.

Now in their fourth season of touring, THE RONDOLIERS 
MALE TRIO will appear at Milligan College November 15. Three 
outstanding young soloists, headed by Edmond Karlsrud, the dis- 
tinguished Bass-Baritone, combine their talents in a unique and 
varied program of Art Songs, Operatic Selections, Show tunes, 
Folk Songs and Negro Spirituals, with all special vocal arrange- 
ments by the accompanist-arranger, Charles Touchette, 

Members of the Rondoliers Trio 
are: Edmond Karlsrud. Bass- 
Baritone; Paul Solem, Tenor; and 
Max Mendenhall, Baritone. 

Edmond Karlsrud, described as, 

"A young man with an easy per- 
sonality and the bass-baritone 
voice with the depth and polish 
of a sapphire," has established 
himself as a recitalist, oratorio 
soloist, and as a guest artist with 
symphony orchestras as well as 
on radio and television. His rec- 
ord of over 900 professional con- 
cert appearances — covering 48 
states, Mexico, and all the 
provinces of Canada— is probably 
unequaled by any singer his age. 
He has appeared on the NBC, 
CBS, ABC, and Dumont TV net- 
works as a soloist, and was re- 
cently seen on the Bell Telephone 
TV show.

There has always been a debate 
over the importance of the "first 
impression." Whatever your be- 
lief is, you cannot get around 
the fact that you do make a first 
impression. Naturally, your im- 
pression of someone may change 
as you get to know him, but it 
helps if you start off well. Some 
people never look beyond their 
first impression. 

Another fact that cannot be 
avoided is the impression you 
make on others. During your 
childhood, your parents may have 
stressed the fact that "someone 
is always watching." This has a 
great deal of truth behind it, be- 
cause someone usually is watch- 
ing. How would you be impressed 
if you saw someone acting the 
way you do? 

Modern society has put you in 
a situation where you cannot 
avoid people nnd the impression 
you give others. This is some- 
thing you must accept so you

The Harriers have piled up 
three more victories in their 
chain of undefeated meets. 

On October 19 the Buffs jour-

Lees-McRae's undefeated record 
We don't know how they came 
out in football, but the Buffs 
spoiled their homecoming festival 
just before the football game 

It was a four-way meet involv- 
ing Wingate College, Asheville 
Biltmore, Lees-McRae and our 
Buffs, The weather was warm 
and clear for the 2|.;| -mile-run 
that finished in front of the 
packed Lees-McRae football sta- 
dium. It must have been sad for 
their fans when seven out of the 
first eight runners coming across 
the line wore orange jerseys. To 
top that off, Eugene Woodby 
broke their school course record 
■of 11:454- with a fabulous time 
of 11.33.4. Billy Judd was only 
one second off the record at 11:46 
as he finished second. Lces-Mc-

the Buffs then picked the follow- 
ing five places: Bill Cornelius 
fourth, Jay Weitzel fifth, Wayne 
Walters sixth, Charlie Dobson 
seventh and Dave "Medium 

Sized" Herndon eighth. The scor- 
ing was as follows: Milligan first 
with 18 points (only 3 shy of a 
perfect 15); Wingate second with 
59 points; Lees-McRae third with 
61 points, and fourth went to 
Asheville Biltmore with 105 

On the 23rd of October the 
Buffs downed East Tennessee 
State University and Lees-Mc- 
Rae. The meet was held here on 
the 3.3 mile course. The Harriers 
captured first with a total of 26 
points. Lees-McRae edged out 
ETSU 54 to 55. Rod Morrel of 
ETSU edged out an ailing Eugene

caneers of State University. The 
rain-soaked mud course provided 
plenty of obstacles for the run- 
ners. Rod Morrel of State grabbed 
first place but the Buffs placed 
seven men in the top nine places. 
Woodby again was the pace set- 
ter among the Buffs. 

Good work, men, let's get the 
big one now. 

Donkey Style 

On Friday. November 1, at 7:30 
p.m., Cheek Gymnasium once 
again became a howling, laugh- 
ing fun house as the Senior Class 
held its annual Donkey Basket- 
ball game. The game (?) was a 
well-fought, well-played, rugged 
(!) contest between the M. C. fac- 
ulty and the Student Council rep- 

Those riding (well, at least try- 
ing to) were; faculty members — 
Dr. Crowder, Dr. Helsabeck, Dr. 
Wetzel, Prof. Owenly. Dr. Webb, 
Mrs. Young, and Mrs. Dowd. 
Student Council members riding 
were — Bill Nice, Jack Waugh, 
Ralph Wheeler and Cliff (city- 
slicker) Johnson. Other members 
who were "chomping the bit" 
to ride were Jerry "Long Legs" 
Carroll, Marsh "Fearless" Bailey, 
Larry "Chicken" Clark, Rex 
"Patience" Jackson, Rick "Wild 
Man" Fulk, Les Bain, Kay Lewis, 
Nancy True, Joan Cunningham, 
Jerry Hicks, Karl Davis. One 
member has not so far been men- 
tioned — Margaret Walker. She 
had the bright idea before every- 
thing started to "make friends 
with the dear little animals" by 
giving them sugar and carrots 
downstairs. I don't know if she 
was thrown, but believe me it 
looked like everyone else out on 
the floor was — at least once?? — 
eh, Nancy Jo?!! 

If you were there, then you 
know what we're talking about! 
Oh, yes! A slight incident so 
far overlooked; the score was 12- 
2 in favor of the Student Coun- 
cil—of course! 


It's splat, splat, spike that ball 
over in Cheek Fieldhouse these 
days. The competition is great 
among the men's volleyball 
teams. The teams are very well 
balanced, which has produced 
great enthusiasm. Even the girls 
are enjoying the games, due to 
the great number of clowns and 
show-offs. With some 50 boys 
playing, there has to be fun and 
frolic. Team No. 2, captained by 
Mike Newman, is still undefeat- 
ed. Come out some evening and 
watch the action. 

Not only has volleyball aroused 
great enthusiasm but it can also 
be seen in the number who have 

signed up for tennis. There is a 
field of 36 competing for the 
championship in the single elimi- 
nation tournament. The tourna- 
ment is now in the third round 
of play. Weather permitting, the 
next issue will have the re- 

Don't forget, Physical Educa-

in the near future at an evening 
meal at Sutton. They will be 
presented with the different point 
awards and championship awards. 


The Milligan Matmcn go after their first victory Nov. 16 against 
the Y.M.C.A. of Knoxville. The Buffs face a tough schedule this 
year with such teams as Appalachian State, Georgia Tech, Uni- 
versity of Tampa, and many others.

Women Set 
Rapid Pace 
In Intramurals 

Interest and enthusiasm this 
year in Woman's Intramural ac- 
tivities is blossoming more each 
day. Although the volleyball 
segment was delayed in starting 
when it was planned, the season 
officially opened October 21 and 
every game since then has been 
fun-filled and exciting. There are 
58 girls participating on eight 
very well-balanced teams. At 
present, there are two undefeat- 
ed teams: Team No. 5, captained 
by Dottie Comer; and Team No. 
8 captained by Dottie Bullis. 
Their records stand at 3-0 and 
4-0, respectively. There have been 
no forfeits, in spite of conflict- 
ing activities. This is another 
sign of the enthusiasm being dis- 
played. On the otherside of the 
scale, however, we find two teams 
that haven't won a single game. 
They are: Team No. 2, captained 
by Kay Lewis; Team No. 4, cap- 
tained by Karen Shaw, 

The Intramural Tennis tourna- 
ment opened Women's Intra- 
murals for this school year. Six- 
teen girls signed up and partici- 
pated in the tournament. Lorna 
Crouch was the final victor, 
having defeated Margaret Walk- 
er for first place. Carolyn Berg 
was the third-place winner. There 
were no forfeited games through- 
out the single elimination tour- 
nament, which took eight days 
to complete. Lorna and Mnrgrct 
will receive awards, as do all

It's easy to predict the outcome when there is a strong 
team like our cross-country squad. This Saturday V meet is for 
the "Big Stuff," the VSAC Championship. Milligan will also 
be up against its toughest competition. Union has a terrific 
team, led by Ron Baker who run a 18:51 on a 3 3/4-mile course. 
He is followed up by a hot freshman and senior at 19:00 and 
19:02 respectively for the same dislnnre. Their other two run- 
ners are only 26 second off that pace. The other repn 
from the western division is David Lipscomb, They will be led 
by Dave Winchell. who placed second in the VSAC Champion- 
ship lust year. The Eastern Division will SCO our Buffs and the 
always strong runners of Carson-Newman. The competition will 
be really keen for all the top 10 places in this race. We've got 
to go with Milligon'j desire and spirit. One more well-deserved 
victory is in line for the Buffs. (You won't want to miss the 
meet at -1:00 p.m., Saturday on Anglin Field. 

Assuming that Knoxville Y MCA. has about the same 
learn as last year, our Buffs will take their first of many vic- 
tories. Milligan now hns experience, with several returning 
lettermen bucked up with some strong new-comers.

College Sports Program Praised 


(Reprinted from Indianapolis 


CASE Q-480: Dr. D. E. Walker 
is the versatile president of Mil- 
ligan College in Tennessee. 

He conducts his school with the 
efficiency and "horse sense" of 
the many private colleges which 
do not depend on forced taxes 
from our citizenry. 

For example, in 1950. Milligan 
College decided it should give up 
intercollegiate football as too ex- 
pensive a drain on the budget, 

Personally. I am a great rooter 
for football, boxing and all the 
sports, but I think it proper to 
cite Milligan's results. 

enrollment of 459 students, ably 
handled by a faculty of 28 cap- 
able teachers. 

This means the student-faculty 
ratio is 16 to 1, somewhat above 
the usual 12 to 1 ratio for the 
usual college. 

Since the ratio in city high 
schools is 24 to 1, Milligan and 
other colleges could still move 
up at a distinct financial profit. 

For if it handled the same load 
as city high schools, those 28 
faculty members could teach not 
459 students but 672 students. 

The difference in student en- 
rollment, namely, 213 could easily 
bring in $125,000 additional reve- 

Even if the faculty were then 
given a salary increase of $3,000 
apiece, there would still be an 
extra $40,000 left over each year 

for general overhead. 

I mentioned this as no reflec- 
tion on Milligan College, but to 
show all colleges how they can 
easily jump faculty salaries 
phenomenally without raising 
tuition or panhandling from 
alumni or taxpayers! 

AFTER DROPPING the expen- 
sive sport of football, Milligan 
also discontinued all athletic 
scholarships and the special sal- 
aries for coaches. 

Now the coaches direct sports 
on their own time and with no 
extra compensation. 

In short, the professors serve 
as voluntary coaches because of 
their fondness for various games. 

How do you suppose Milligan 
College rates in its present inter- 
collegiate sports menu, which still 
includes basketball, baseball, ten- 
nis, track, cross-country, wrestling 
and golf? 


WELL, ITS 1962 teams in tennis 
won the Volunteer State Athletic 
Conference championship. 

The golf team won the eastern 
division championship. The base- 
ball team was runner-up to the 
champion of the VSAC and had 
its greatest season in more than 
12 years. 

Wrestling, track and cross- 
country all were above the aver- 
age in their leagues. 

Although I have never visited 
Milligan College and know noth- 
ing of it except by report, I am 
citing its remarkable record to 
show that sports can still thrive 
without the excessive commer- 
cialism of many big name uni- 

Dr. Rice Addresses 
Education Club 

The Physical Education Club is 
off to its best year. The club has 
reorganized to provide a more 
functional program for all Phy- 
sical Education majors and min- 
ors. The clubs objectives are to 
professionally prepare all those 
who are entering the field of 
HYPR. This includes all possible 
problems a future instructor or 
coach will encounter. Programs 
are set up to aid the physical 
education student by supplement- 
ing instructional courses. 

The club meets every Monday 
from 10-11 a.m. The officers se- 
lected for this year are Carolyn 
Berg, president; Bud Campbell, 
vice president; Sally Gray, sec- 
retary-treasurer; Lorn a Crouch 
recording secretary, and Mike 
Combs, publicity director, Harold 
Stout is club sponsor. 

On November 4 the club was 
privileged to hear Dr. Rice from 
East Tennessee State University, 
a former Milligan coach. His sub- 
ject dealt with the "place of phy- 
sical education in today's world," 
The club appreciated Dr. Rice's 
enthusiastic attitude toward phy- 
sical education participation. 



If you know anything about 
cross-country you know it's a 
sport that requires a special type 
of athlete with lots of will-power. 
It is not a rewarding sport as 
far as spectator recognition goes. 
It requires men to be in top 
physical condition- It takes men 
of real desire and sacrifice. That 
is way we have selected Eugene 
Woodby as our Athlete of the 
Month. Eugene has the determi- 

nation that makes a great athlete. 
He leads the cross-country team 
in desire. He works hard at keep- 
ing in top physical shape. This is 
seen in his record, he has led the 
Milligan pack in all the meets 
except the very first one. His 
biggest feat this year is a school 
record at Lees-McRae which he 
broke on 19th of October. Con- 
gratulations, Eugene, and keep 
up the good work. 

Warm autumn days hi ought many students to the archery range.

analytical approach, it also pro- 
vides the most extensive library 
in the world for church history 
studies. In and around Edin- 
burgh are nctive religious groups 
which perpetuate the life out of 
which the Campbells came. These 
served as the antecedents of the 
Restoration Movement and as the 
propellers toward Dr. Walker's 
education in the field of church 

"Modern scholarship is de- 
ficient in its failuro to admit 
into the educational pursuits 
the context of Biblical loarn- 
ing into other aspects of infor- 
mation, research, and knowl- 
edge with u resultant impover- 
ishment of the contont of tho 

curriculum; e. g., in the study 
of aesthetics, few critics have 
admitted the validity of Bibli- 
cal concopts as necessary to a 
valid judgmont of tho arts." 

snys Dr. Walker, and it is this 
very I; irk which motivated him 
in his objectives for Milligan Col- 
lege. His desire is to build a cur- 
riculum which will admit this 
principle and to assemble a fac- 
ulty to direct and stimulate learn- 
ing with this context of study. 
The result of this will be found 
in the pragmatic results of church 
leadership enacted by the Milli- 
gan graduate — both the seculnr 
vocational student and the re- 
ligious vocational student. This 
also gives to the campus a 
redemptive nature, bringing the 
students and the community 
closer to the original truth.

Salary level is an important 
consideration and Mr. Garcia in- 
dicated that the inexperienced 
person begins at income Grade 
5 or $4,565 a year. The exper- 
ienced person can begin at salary 
scale 6 or $5,540 a year. Those 
selected for management intern 
positions have a starting pay at 
Grade 7 or $6,672. A person in 
the course of government serv- 
ive can attain a salary level of 
Grade 12. 

Fringe benefits include paid 
vacations, accruable sick leave, 
low-cost group life insurance, re- 
tirement plan, and a bonus in- 
centive program. 

Mr, Garcia feels that no em- 
ployer in the world can offer a 
more important and interesting 
career than the U.S. government.

over by two main contestants. 
Rockefeller, liberal governor of 
New York, and Goldwater, the 
head of the popular conservative 
movement in this country. Ken- 
nedy will undoubtedly carry the 
Democratic nomination. Earlier 
polls have shown Milligan to be 
overwhelmingly Republican in 
sentiment. It would be interest- 
ing to find out if the majority 
of the students are liberal or con- 
servative in their political thought 
and how they back their opinion. 
Has Kennedy's administration 
been a success? Would Goldwa- 
tor's conservatism be too great a 
change for America? What can 
Rockefeller offer the nation?

and thus promote solid thinking toward solution of th»se issues. 

If Milligan College's faculty have failed to do this, they not 
only have failed us, but they have failed the great purpose they 
represent as being faculty. If. as the shoe fits the other foot, we 
have failed this faculty, and, or administration in its endeavor to 
promote solid principles, then we have failed ourselves and our 
purpose for being here, which is to leam, and to mold our minds 
that we may be purposefully fitted for framing the future, not only 
for ourselves, nor for the group of people we call friends, but for 
the whole world. There is no place for weakness in this world, for 
weakness breeds more weakness. Try to stamp out all weakness 
here. This can be done by taking action now upon the issue of 
"prayer in the public schools." The first action that we can pos- 
sibly take is understanding of the problem. We can not choose a 
side and fight for its victory, if we do not understand the basic 
problem. When we understand the issue clearly, we are in a posi- 
tion to do something about the problem. Let us educate ourselves 
fully by knowing what Is going on in the world around us for we 
soon will be a big part of that world, Like a baby bird that tries 
its wings, we too must try our thoughts. Before we can leave the 
nest, we must be prepared to fly and fly well, Our exercise while 
here should be in preparation for the test we face very shortly. 

Let us discover the satisfaction of meeting and facing a situa- 
tion that seems impossible from a distance, but becomes more and 
more possible as we close the gap between us and the problem. 

To the Editor: 

In an issue of a national magazine a few months ago there 
appeared an article on the morals of America. While the problem is 
not native to America, we, being nation founded on the 

Protestant Ethic, are concerned about the decadence of our society. 
What has happened to our morals? 

In the article a churchman stated that while attendance In 
churches was never so high, influence was never so low. Our moral 
leadership comes from the churches, but the of America 
have failed to provide effective mora) leadership. In some ii 
the churches have actually condoned the abuse of church edifices 
and the mores of society, and compromised the commandments of 

We as Christians cannot stand idly by and scoff, saying it can't 
happen to us. We cannot compromise our beliefs. The youth of 
America need a definite moral code, and it cannot be compromised 
by man. They must have instilled in them the moral film which 
will keep America great 

We of the MUllgan Community can do this— by our words nnd 
by our deeds. The v.

THANKSGIVING, 1963. presents a notable contrast with the 
first Thanksgiving festival held December, 1621, by the Plymouth 
colony, when Governor William Bradford declared a season of 
prayer and fasting. The colonists gave thanks for the fact that 
they were still alive, that the first difficult year in the new country 
had ended, that the harvests had been abundant, that at last some 
of the Indians were friendly, that the colonists had protection from 
the wind and the rain. 

In American terminology, "We've come a long way since that 
time." And how much more we have for which to be thankful! 
For a nation that is free; for the privilege of worshipping God 
without interference, for an age of abundance; for an opportunity 
for quality education; for everyday blessings we take for granted 
— for all these things, we with the hymn writer must say: 

For the beauty of the earth, 

For the glory of the skies, 

For the love which from our birth 

Over and around us lies, 

Lord of all, to Thee we raise, 

This our hymn of grateful praise. 




"Christian Education, the Hope 
of the World," is not just an 
empty phrase at Milligan College. 
It is made vital through innum- 
erable opportunities for learning, 
for service, and for worship at 

A significant aspect of worship 
that is provided within the frame- 
work of the Milligan community 
is the chapel service. Regret- 
tably the size of the college au- 
ditorium does not permit the 
whole student body to assemble 
at one time; hence a split-ses- 
sion is required. 

From as far back as one can 
remember, the college has re- 
quired students to be present at 
these services of worship. Such a 
requirement is consonant with the 
central purpose of Milligan. Cur- 
rently a series of messages on 
basic Christian doctrines is being 
presented, which many of the 
students have considered most 

Occasionally a student feels 
that the required presence at the 
chapel worship does not involve 
him. The chapel committee is 
giving such absentees the option 
of writing an acceptable essay 
on the subject of the chapel mes- 
sage for the day missed. In or- 
der to facilitate the writing of 
the essay, the absentee will be 
suspended from attending all 
classes until the essay is com- 
pleted and accepted by the com- 


"It was the best of times and the worst of times, it was 
the age of wisdom, il was the season of darkness, it was the 
spring of hope, il was the winter of despair, we had every- 
thing before us. we had nothing before us . . ." With these 
words Charles Dickens begins A TALE OF TWO CITIES. 

Such a dichotony of emotion as Dickens expresses is not 
unlike the kindred feelings every American has experienced 
since the ignominous event of less than a week ago. 

Let us recall the empty feeling of numbness and despair 
that went through ue when we heard the words, "The Presi- 
dent is dead!" . . . Now we are even more aware of the im- 
plications of his assassination ... in a very real way, we 
have been projected into the worst of times. 

Questioning minds ask today, "Can we out of darkness 
find light? Can we on this Thanksgiving Day. 1963, be 

Like the stage Dickens sets, there exists today, side by 
side, the winter of despair and the spring of hope. We 
grieve, yos — but we must remember one simple and yet en- 
compassing fact. GOD IS STILL IN COMMAND. HU guid- 
ing spirit yet leads and certainly His blessings are evident. 
Therefore, we can without equivocation, he courageous, con- 
fident, and, above all. thankful. 

Today is the best of times, if we make it so.

Letters to the Editor 

To the Editors: 

There has been brought to my attention since the recent death 
of former President Kennedy the lack of display of the American 
flag on our campus. Does Milligan College have an American flag? 
If so, why it is not displayed? 

It seems that during the recent "Design-A-Flag" contest for 
Milligan College that the absence of the flag of our nation would 
have been noticed, 

Furthermore, does Milligan College have a Christian Flag? 
Is not our slogan, "Christian Education the Hope of the World?" 

It seems to me that this situation should be corrected either 
by the students or the school administration as soon as possible. 
(Signed) ANDY LAYNE. 

To the Editors: 

In the last edition of Ihe Stampede, I wrote a letter to the 
editor in which a line was censored. It concerned a tragic occur- 
rence in one of OUR churches in a major city, I say tragic, in 
the sense that it put a black spot on the image of all Christian 
Churches. The item made the front pages of the daily newspapers, 
and yet at Milligan this item did not receive passing consideration. 
It points a finger at our own Churches; but we cannot point fingers 
at Milligan. 

Is it necessary to censor the truth? Are we permitted a forum 
for freely expressed, diverse opinion without the threat of censor- 
ship at Milligan? Not at Milligan!! 

The purpose of an educational institution is to educate, not in a 
few areas, but in u)\ areas. The student should be able to discern 
for himself the truths which are compatible with his philosophy of 
life. These truths should be independent of administrative censoi 

For those who have read 1984 will realize that control of the 
truth is the first step in control of the mind, Do we desire to b< 
come automatons???

This is the second in a series of article*, Collegians Speak. 
in which talented students in all areas of study at Milligan 
College are asked by the editors to express their viewpoints 
Oil any subject they desire. 

Miss Jean Wright, sophomore pre-med student from Mich- 
igan, lucidly communicates her opinions for this issue. 

Stop and reminisce for just a moment. Do you remember 
isolated solitary moments in younger years when you realized that 
you were you, an individual being, separate from everyone else? 
It was a tingly, delicious feeling; but it was scary, too, because 
you knew that since the years ahead belonged to no one else but 
you, you also had full responsibility for the use of those years. 

Perhaps in these dreams of 
childhood, you resolved that 
such a marvelous thing as your 
life was not going to be wasted. 

So often as we grow older, and 
our days become filled with 
ceaseless and mundane activity, 
we lose this wonderment and awe 
toward life. We forget that life 
and the freedom to use it arc 
precious gifts from God. Our 
approach to everything we do 
becomes one of mediocrity with 
the apathetic altitude of "Let's

But it does matter! Whatever 
we do has significance, if not to 
others, at least to the molding of 
our own characters. Slip-shod 
work and half-hearted living 
aren't the ingredients which 
combine to make us satisfied 
with ourselves. 

Every task deserves our best 
effort no matter how unimportant 
it may seem. Of course, not ev- 
eryone will be able to accomplish 
the task with the same degree 
of perfection because each of us 
has different abilities; but the 
person who puts forth his best 
will never be ashamed of the 
final outcome. 

No matter what occupation or 
profession we take as our life 
work, whether it be minister, 
teacher, coach, doctor, wife, or 
any other, we should strive to 
be the best in that field we pos- 
sibly can within our personal 
limitations. "Anything worth do- 
ing is worth doing well." The 
person who lives by that motto 
will some day be able to sur- 
render to God the glorious gift 
of life with no regrets and with 
the satisfaction that his life wai 
used wisely.

the Recreation room of Sutton

the largest organization on cam- 
pus. Christian Service Club seeks 
to merit this honor in programs 
of music and devotion, all of 
which lead to a furtherance of 
the direction of worship sought 
among the students. Gary Jen- 
kins, president of the club, has 
worked with his vice-president, 
Bruce Montgomery, secretary, 
Lynn Harkey; and treasurer, Ma- 
rion Korpi; to retain the high 
calibre which Christian Ser\'ice 
Club has already achieved,

the program; Jerry Carroll sang 
and Nancy McCorkle gave a read-

members aware of the spiritual 
aspect of Thanksgiving. 

Among the activities of the or- 
ganization, the gospel teams take 
first place, for these are the rep- 
resentatives of both the club and 
the school. These groups go to 
various churches and meetings in 
both this immediate area and in 
other states to present the Chris- 
tian message in sermon and song. 
Also in service, the Christian 
Service Club plans to give money 
and aid to the East Tennessee 
Christian Home to help in the 
contribution to the necessities of 
its existence. 

Christian Service Club pro- 
poses and accomplishes the task 
of furthering the attitude of wor- 
ship among the students of Mil- 
ligan, not only in the meetings 
themselves, but in the continual 
everyday life of each student.

Becky Gregory and John Neff 
became Mr. and Mrs. in May, 
1962. They and the rest of their 
family, "Tippy" are some of those

Becky, from Tucson, Arizona, 
is a social studies major, who 
wants to be an elementary teach- 
er. She is one of these "odd" peo- 
ple who doesn't really dislike 
anything, but she loves to sew, 
particularly without a machine; 
going to a movie, and traveling. 
Just like a kid she likes any 
bright color and "love" stories. 
Becky will be a January grad- 

uate and is considering Florida 
for her teaching career. 

John, originally from Pitts- 
burgh, Pennsylvania, is a busi- 
ness major who would like to be 
an accountant. He loves cars, 
ping pong, and of course, the 
Pittsburgh Pirates. He dislikes 
very intensely taking Mrs. Neff 
to the show, eating vegetables, 
and helping around the house. 

They have one excellent rec- 
ommendation for married life — 
their grades have skyrocketed.

For years the students of Milligan College have been isolated 
from the world so to speak. We are so busy with classes and 
school activities that we simply aren't aware of the "outside" world

Slate Officers 

The commuters have selected 
their officers for the school year 
1963-64. They are as follows: 
Jim Bishop, president; Richard 
Teaster, vice-president; and Sue 
Hilbert, secretary- The repre- 
sentatives from each class for the 
Commuter's Council arc Lynnc 
Hilbert and Ronnie Stanley from 
the freshman class, Betty Os- 
borne from the sophomore class, 
Sue Hilbert and Don Sweeney 
from the junior class, and Nell 
Donnelly and Richard Teaster 
from the senior class. 

Very often commuting stu- 
dents at Milligan College feel 
they are not considered an in- 
tegral part of the Milligan fam- 
ily. They are not adequately in- 
formed of the affairs of the col- 
lege. Too often they are looked 
down upon by dormitory stu- 
dents even though the dormitory 
students may not realize that 
they have this attitude towards 

One of the big issues with 
which the commuters have found 
fault was the establishment of 
the Student Court and the man- 
ner of its proceedings. The com- 
muters felt that if they were 
subject to the jurisdiction of this 
court, they should have a repre- 
sentative sitting on the court. 
The Student Council agreed that 
this view was justified and at 
their last meeting they decided 
to allow a commuter to serve on 
the court. As a result, Richard 
Teaster will be representing the 
commuters on the court, help- 
ing to create a better attitude on 
this subject among the commut-

sonal friend. To me he was the 
symbol of the American — the 
idea, the spirit." 

Tom McCune commented, "A 
tremendous loss to the American 
people. A truly devoted Ameri- 
can leader in a personal sense." 

Pat Harper expressed herself 
thusly, "It was such a complete 
and horrible shock. I think we 
all felt lost and alone. President 
Kennedy was both strong and 
vigorous and his loss is tragic." 

A memorial service was held 
in the Milligan College chapel 
at 10:00 A. M. on Monday. Pray- 
ers were offered for the deceased 
president, the man who must 
carry on in his position, and for 
the American people as a whole. 
President Walker addressed a 
sombre audience filled with the 
sense of its loss. 

Now we as young Americans 
must recoup our loss through 
our own duties and interest in 
the political structure of our 
democratic system. New men 
with new alive ideas will rise 
from the masses — we must be 
prepared to help them build the 
country — a country which finds 
its basic strength in Christian 
principles and dedicated men, 
and zealous workers.

"The development of the hu- 
man being is the climax of all 
wonders." (E. S. Conklin>. 

What is a wonder? A few years 
ago electricity was considered a 
wonder and a most significant in- 
vention. Today however, it is ele- 
mentary and usually taken for 

The human being is, and will 
always be, the greatest of all won- 
ders. Considering that as humans 
we are outstanding in that we 
are above animals, one would 
think that we would know more 
about ourselves. It is surprising 
how little we really know about 
our existence. The only way we 
can learn more is for each person 
to be interested in knowing why 
he is as he is. One can't begin 
to understand others till he first 
has some kind of understanding 
about himself. 

Being accepted by society is 
important to each individual but 
only the adjusted and well de- 
veloped person is considered for 
membership. Ask any member of 
this organization how he came 
about being accepted, and his 
simple answer will be, "I learned 
to accept reality." 

The same holds true for those 
who come to Milligan College. 
Each of us have come from dif- 
ferent backgrounds and have 
been thrown together and are 
expected to make the necessary 

The tradition of this college is 
to be a family, and as a family, 
each must contribute if we con- 
tinue to receive. This means giv- 
ing of ourselves to gain the best 
results. We have placed ourselves 
in a new environment: one we 
should accept as it is and not 
change for our own selfish rea- 

Each person wants to be ac- 
cepted and the best way is to 
cease the attempt at trying to 
change that which will always be 
the same. As members of our so- 
ciety, we should learn not to re- 
sist what comes along in life — 
just learn to get along with it.

In 1960 there were twenty-four million young people of high 
school and college age between fifteen and twenty-four in the United 
States. By 1970 the Bureau of Census estimates that this age group 
will have at least thirty-six million. To provide trained counselors 
to work with this important segment of our society will require 
an intensive program of instruction and training on the part of 
our colleges and universities. 

Life consists of a continuing 
series of new events and experi- 
ences. It requires all of us to

gained much public favor in re-

November 28, 1963 


By JOHN W. NETH, Jr.. Librarian 

Josephus Hopwood died January 29, 1935, aged 91 years, 9 
months and one day. He was buried in Happy Valley Cemetery 
on February 1, 1935. This information is found on the certificate 
of his death found among his papers and personal letters located 
in the college library. 

At the time of the death of the founder of Milligan College, 
these records were apparently transferred to the college for storage 
and future reference. No record of their content had been made, 
and as years passed the huge boxes were moved about until, in 
the memory of those present at the college, they were lost. Many 
thought that the material had been destroyed. 

Dr. Shields, our supervising teacher, discusses the program with 
Ed Pierpont, a student teacher at Science Hill High School. The 
STAMPEDE carries an article in this issue on elementary edu- 
cation. In (he next issue we will present an article on secondary 


Every year Milligan College has many students engaged in 
student teaching in the elementary and secondary schools. These 
students are assigned to their schools by Professor Shields, their 
advisor. The main purpose of student teaching is to help the new

neatly among the papers and in a 
good state of preservation. 

Among the most notable rec- 
ords found were such items as 
the contract agreement between 
Josephus Hopwood and C. D. M. 
Showwalter dated January 25, 
1894, in which a six-year agree- 
ment was made to keep the col- 
lege in active operation. Mr. 
Hopwood was to be president 
with certain rights, and Show- 
waiter was given a first lien 
mortgage deed on all the college 
property. J. L. English was also 
in thc contract with Mr. Show- 
waiter. Perhaps the most valu- 
able historical item is the record 
book of the financial transactions 
of Josephus Hopwood relative to 
the Buffalo Mnle nnd Female In- 
stitute. The records date from 
September 7, 1876, and are with 
such men as Joshua Williams 
who gave the land for both 
church and college; P. P. Wil- 
liams, George Williams. Anthony 
Ferguson, Joshua Palton. John 
Anderson, William Smalling, J. C. 
Hardin, and many others. This 
record book is in compartivi-ly 
good condition. 



Two of the most talked about 
new books deal with the lives of 
literary figures. They are of par- 
ticular interest to English majors 
who desire a deeper than surface 
acquaintance with the men who 
made such enduring contribu- 
tions to literature. 

The Letters of F. Scott Fitz- 
gerald is a penertating study of 
this novelist of the Post World 
War I era and the jazz age. Fitz- 
gerald accurately portrayed the 
spirit of the twenties in such 
books as The Great Galsby, This 
Side of Paradise, The Beautiful 
and The Damned, and Tender Is 
the Night. The letters, edited by 
Andrew Turnbull, were written 
for the most part in the late thir- 
ties. At that time, Fitzgerald 
was considered an anachronism. 
The author, although both poor 
and puzzled by the new age into 
which he has been thrust, did 
some of his best writing at this 
time. Some of it is contained in 
these, his personal letters. 

The lives of two famous peo- 
ple are illuminated in Dorothy 
and Red by Vincent Sheean. Nov- 
elist Sinclair Lewis and globe- 
trotting Dorothy Thompson made 
quite an interesting pair and a 
certainly extraordinary marriage. 
The intimacies of their often tor- 
tured relationship are delved into 
by the author, and sometimes 
coupled with amateur analysis of 
his own, a practice slightly detri- 
mental to the book. The fairly 
accurate picture of Lewis which 
one receives from the work, how- 
ever, makes it worthwhile. 

really the job of a dean, but they 
are the job of Dean Oakes. Thus 
when Dean Oakes replied to my 
question — what are your objec- 
tives for Milligan — by saying that 
he wanted to see it become an all 
men's school with no cars, I just 
replied, "Hummph," and con- 
tinued my questions, because 
that's just Dean Oakes. 


In the hope of uncovering and assimilating the various opinions 
of the Milligan student body, the STAMPEDE is initiating on opin- 
ion poll. The survey, fashioned after the illustrious Gallup Poll, 
is appropriiately entitled the STAMPEDE Poll. 

The poll questions for this is- by 53,. '.Moon River." "Love is

We understand that women's participation in athletics is the 
up and coming thing on the college level. It is a fact that Auburn 
fields a women's track and field team. By the way, boys, they've

bama has a girl on their tennis team who can beat just about every- 
body in their conference. But I've heard the SEC is prohibiting

This month presented a prob- 
lem for selecting an outstanding 
athlete, due to the fact that every 
member of the Cross-Country 
team has done an outstanding 
job. Congratulations goes out to 
all our men. 

Our special recognition goes to 
Dave Herndon, the only senior on 
the Cross-Country team. Dave has 
been a constant point winner for 
the Buffs for four constant years 
now, which includes not only 
Cross-Country but also track. He 
was a member of the '62 basket- 
ball squad as a sophomore, and 
on the Coca-Cola team in Johnson 
City last year. Dave ran as the 
number two man on the Buff 

squad his sophomore year when 
Milligan fielded its first Cross- 
Country team that year. 

Dave is an aggressive athlete; 
is evident in his records. He 
has moved from the number 7 
runner at the first of the season, 
to the number 3 slot at present. 
In the past three meets Dave has 
finished strong positions to add 
many important Buff victories. If

Ed Pierpont, a senior here at 
Milligan, has successfully coached 
Science Hill High School to the 
TSSAA State Championship with- 
out the help of any of the coaches 
at Science Hill. He has complete 
charge of the Cross-Country team 
and has used many Yankee 
touches to complete an undefeat- 
ed season. His record stands at 
10-0 with such feats as Big Six 
Conference Champs. Appalachian 
Invitational Champs, East Ten- 
nessee Regional Champ, and the 
TSSAA State Championship. 

Even though Ed's team defeat- 
ed all other opponents with ex- 
ceptional ease, they were not even 
rated as one of the favorites to 
win the state. It must have got 
Ed's dandruff up because he 
pulled a Yankee trick out of 
the Southern Hat by making his 
boys run barefooted on the grass 
course. The other schools thought 
he was crazy, but his team was 
fired up and all his runners im- 
proved over their Regional times 
and brought the State Champion- 
ship home for Ed. 

Ed is majoring in Physical 
Education and will receive credit 
for student teaching as coach at 
Science Hill. In 1961, Ed was the 
captain and number one runner 
on Milligan's first Cross-Country 
team. He also ran the mile and 
two-mile for the track team. Ed 
retired last year from these ac- 
tivities to a more personal goal 
(marriage). We hope he makes 
this as successful as he has rep- 
resented the Milligan Physical

Close - Up On Coach Walker 


Each year as a new crop of 
freshmen boys enter Milligan, 
Coach Stout puts them through 
a rugged physical fitness pro- 

The objective is to condition 
the boys to maintain healthy 
bodies. The program has a good 
"carry-over" value for future 

The test for the Physical Fit- 
ness Rating consists of three 
parts which each student must 

take; a shuttle run consisting of 
7 full times up and back the 
length of the gym, a pull-up test 
and a two minute period in which 
he does all the sit-ups he can. 
The tests are given periodically 
throughout the year and a final 
rating is recorded at the end of 
the year. The scoring which each 
individual acquires is compared 
with those on the national level. 
This year Coach Stout is giv- 
ing a trophy in each event to the 
student with the highest score. 



Sporis Editor 


So far we are batting a thousand on the predictions, even 
Sports Illustrated and Dr. Litkenhous can't support a record 
like that. 

Monthly issues of the paper limit us to our predictions on 
the basketball schedule, therefore, we will predict a season 
record and as many games as possible. 

We are relying on the crystal ball for this prediction; but 
we believe with hard work, a little luck, and two good referees, 
the Buffs will improve on last year's record. The Buffs will take 
10 games and drop 11. 

The Alumni will have top shooters and rebounders, but the 
old story of age and condition will tell the tale. Buffs take the 
Alumni in a close fought battle. The Buffs will encounter an 
improved Lei b-McRbc team Saturday night. After battling with 
the Alumni, the Buffs should find it easier with Lees-McRae. 
Buffs will rout Lees-McRae. 

Not too hard on this one, Matmen should defeat Maryville 
with case.

The spirit of Christmas is com- 
posed of many traditional and 
dear symbols. 

Saint Nicholas served as a 
bishop in Asia Minor in A. D. 
300's. He was famous for his 
generosity and people came to 
believe that every surprise gift 
came from him. He is recognized 
by many other names. The 
French call him Pere Noel, the 
Italians La Befana. and the Swiss 
Chris Kringle. He is now recog- 
nized as a kindly symbol of 
Christmas throughout the world. 

The name Santa Claus is be- 
lieved to have developed from a 
European source. American chil- 
dren, who were unable to pro- 
nounce Saint Nicholas as the 
Dutch did, referred to this sym- 
bol of Christmas as Santa Claus. 
Santa Claus has since developed 
into a distinctively American 
symbol. An American minister 
and poet, Clement C. Moore, made 
the Santa Claus we know a leg- 
end in 1823.

This issue's writer, Bruce Montgomery, searching!)' asks, 
"Are we ready for Christmas?" 

So many times during the last few days of November and the 
days of December we hear the very familiar question asked, "Are

We have all heard the oft-re- 
peated slogan, "Put Christ Back in 

This slogan is inaccurate, we 
feel. Ever since thai holy night, 
almost 2.000 years ago. when the 
Son of God became man, Christ 
has boen in Christmas. Christ has 
been and always will be in 
Christmas. The person who needs 
to be put back in Christmas is 
you and me. 

How many of us observe the 
birth of the Redeomor without 
even a thought given to whose 
birthday wo are celebrating? Who 
among us would plan a birthday 
party without inviting the celeb- 
rant? No one, of course. Yet 
how many celebrate Christ's 
birthday without even paying 
homage to the Babe of Bethle- 

Who would think of going to 
the home of someone who is 
celebrating a birthday and doing 
everything ho could to insult the 
honored guest? Very few poo- 
ple. Yet many of us celebrate 
Christmas by getting intoxicated 
and doing everything possible to 
insult the Christ whose birthday 
we are purportedly celebrating. 

Christmas is not the birthday 
of Santa Claus. It is not a day 
to stuff ourselves with food and 
recoivo presents. It is not a 
worldly holiday. It is the birth- 
day of our Rcdoemor.

Marsha Head, hiteivicwhig journalist ftn Camjim Personalities, 
visits this month with Dlt. JOSKI'H II. DAMPIER, Provnsl «\ 
Milligan College. 


Dr. Joseph H. Dampicr, Provost of Milligan College, fulfills a 
unique position for an American school. By definition a provost 
is the head of certain colleges in England or Ireland, but in America 
he is the administrator concerned with educational matters. Of 
himself, Dr. Dampier said, "Well, you can tell I'm a second-place 
man, because I go to Florida in the summer and Michigan in the 
winter." Actually, at Milligan, no one ir allowed to take second 
place. Our policy is to see that everyone works; and, while the 
student body usually sees Dr. Dampier in his academic gown dur- 
ing Convocation or Commencement, he is known to the admin- 
istration in a much more magnified capacity, and to the few stu- 
dents as a teacher in the fields of church administration and re- 
ligious education.

wouldn't be Christmas without 
the Christ. And so we con- 
clude our evening with the high- 
light of the party — a one-act 
Christmas drama entitled "Lift 
Thine Eyes." It is directed by 
Esther Bryan and Lana Lanier 
and it features many members 
of our student body. Of course, 
there will be refreshments, too. 

We think tonight will be a 
wonderful evening. We hope you 
will plan to attend.

against Mars Hill when he poured 
in 42 points as the Buffs ran the 
tally up to 108 points. So far 
this season, Rusty has poured in 
117 points against 4 foes for an 
average of 29.2 points per game. 

Rusty hails from Atlanta, Geor- 
gia, and is majoring in Physical 

Keep up the good work, Rusty, 
and congratulations for an out- 
standing job. 


Are you prepared for Christ- 
mas? Do you recall how hectic 
Christmas can become? Late the 
nineteenth of Decmber you will 
arrive home ready for a vaca- 
tion of leisure, but what do you 
find at home — chaos! 

Mother has already fixed sev- 
en different kinds of pie (over 
fall break she didn't fix any). 
She has the forty-pound turkey 
all wrapped-up like a stick of 
chewing gum, 

Next, you arc: reminded of 
presents for your second cousins, 
who nre coming to visit. Conse- 
quently, you spend the night be- 
fore Christmas pushing through 
the crowded stores buying mon- 
strous vases and Old Spice. Al- 
though you once played on n 
football team, after that crowd 

you begin to wonder how you 
ever survived those four years 
on the gridiron. 

Christmas dawns bright and 
early. This is the day for un- 
veiling of packages and pretend- 
ing to like four varieties of pur- 
ple ties. You then run a race 
to see who can get sickest the 
quickest on white meat and ev- 
erything sweet — except the hard 
candy which always remains as 
a three-month memorial around 
the house. Then follows an eve- 
ning with the Pepto-Bismol. The 
rest of the vacation is likewise 
spent recuperating. 

THE STAMPEDE staff would 
like to wish you good luck over 
this 1063 Christmas vacation. 
Have a Merry Christmas and a 
Happy New Year. 

Capers Off To A 
Good Start 

The Buffs are off to a good 
season with 4 wins and 2 losses 
(Alumni through Carson - New- 
man). Carson-Newman has been 
the only real block in a begin- 
ning season, and that game was 
without the services of Co-cap- 
tain Rusty Stevens. The Eagles 
went over the century mark in 
posting a 105-60 victory. Even 
though the Eagles defeated the 
Buffs with ease, they are not 
45 points better than Milligan. 

The Buffs have put together 
two century-mark victories them- 
selves. In the opener with the 
Alumni they posted a 100-68 vic- 
tory over the old-timers. The 
latest came against Mars Hill 
when the Buffs threw in 101 
points to Mars Hill's 91. 

A strong team effort, combin- 
ing offense and defense, halted 
a good Bryan College team. Mil- 
ligan came from behind after a 
hot streak early in the first half. 
After the Buffs got on top, the 
best Bryan could do was get 67 
points in a losing cause to Mil- 
lion's 76 points. 

Seven men edged out a late- 
rallying Buff team at Lees-Mc- 
Rae. That is 5 green and white 
jersies and 2 black and white 
ones. Do not quote.

BE DONE!!! Yes, sport lovers, 
they said that an article such as 
Sports-Wise could never be print- 
ed for two consecutive years in 
the STAMPEDE. Well, here it 
is along with its famous brand 
of humor and other interesting 
tidbits. . 

On January 13th, our Big Buf- 
falo Team journeys to Wopland 
for the first encounter of this 
year's edition of the Buffalo- 
Pioneer battle. We hope that the 
best team wins, because the Herd 
is the best team. Of course, it 
will be a rough fight but our 
boys are the stronger set. As to 
the basketball game, I believe 
that Milligan has the best team, 

The Senior Class and the 
Physical Education Club have 
combined finances to purchase 
glass backboards to be installed 
in the Cheek Sports Arena over 
Christmas vacation. This will be 
one step closer to giving the 
Buffs an official basketball court. 
Technically, all opposing teams 
in the past could have refused 
to play on the Cheek floor. 
N. A. I. A. rules state that glass 
rectangular backbords are to be 
used and that the floor is to be 
longer and wider than that in 
the Buff gym. The new back- 
boards will also help our team 
in their away games as they will 
be used to playing on this type 
backboard. The backboards will 
be installed so that they can be 
moved to the new gym if and 
when one is built. Hm-m-m.

Physical Education Club could 

The wrestling squad is wishing 
that Bob Kerrick would have

he has succeeded instead in crip- 
pling it. Those who have fallen 
before him in practice are Paul 
Conklin, with a pulled back mus-

ear caused by a finger-nail jab: 
and John Boyd and Larry Patter-

2 points with 27 seconds on the

Men's Intramurals 

The long rectangular nets of 
volleyball have given way to the 
round nets hanging from the bas- 
ketball hoops. 

Finishing undefeated, Team No. 
2, captained by Mike Newman, 
won the volleyball champion- 
ship. Other members included 
Phil Hansen. Ralph Ernest. 
Mike Combs, Lowell Pemberton, 
George Ross, Darell Tuttle, and 
Gary Nicholson. Good work on 
a hard fought season. 

H. B. Whitt received his trophy 
on November 28 for winning the 
intramural Tennis Tournament. 
We hope H. B. goes out for the 
varsity in the Spring. 

Cheek Memorial Fieldhouse 
will be seeing plenty of action 
between now and March. 

With 120 men playing on 15 
teams the fieldhouse will see ac-

each of these nights, at 7, 8, and 
9 P. M. on Monday, Tuesday and 
Friday nights. The girls will be

Milliganites Migrate To Ski Slopes 

February 3rd the Milligan Ski Club left the academic 
world at the Buffalo Campus, and bounded in a nine-car 
caravan to the North Carolina ski slopes. The two-day va-

the strain of the recently completed final examinations.

Milligan Post Office

A new Milligan College Post 
Office will be waiting for us when 
we return to Milligan next fall. 
The work has already begun and 
will be completed in July when 
the government sends the new 

With the increasing student 
body and faculty members and 
the growing community, a larger 
post office became a necessity. 
The post office will be increased 
from 396 square feet to 920 feet. 
Five hundred and thirty new 
boxes will provide service for 800 
to 1,000 plus the local patrons. 
This will take care of any in- 
crease for the next ten years. Stu- 
dents will be able to retain the 
same box throughout their col- 
lege life, instead of taking what 
is available. 

The new post office will have 
two entrances. Besides the pres- 
ent entrance, the side door facing 
the street will be the second en- 
trance. The mail will be received 
from a loading platform located 
on the right side of the building. 
An L-shapcd lobby will cover the 
front and loft side of the build- 
ing, Everything in the office will 
be new. During the summer, the 
office will be air conditioned. 

At present, our post office is 
a third class post office. When 
the net receipts exceed $8,000 an 

nually, it will be classified as a 
second class post office. 


It's almost Valentine's Day and 
by the looks of the lobbies in the

This year our annual Valentine

will want to attend. 

The dress will be semi-formal

that is! We haven't had many 
occasions for the girls to get out 
their special party dresses, so 
you'll all want to attend an eve-

Bykotas Discuss 



At a meeting on January 9 the 
Bykotas were privileged to have 
with them Mr. Bill Richards from 
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) of 
Johnson City. Mr. Richards spoke 
to them concerning the purpose 
of AA. He gave some statistics, 
one of which is that one of every 
fifteen who takes his first drink 
becomes an alcoholic. He stated 
that because of the empathic cir- 
cumstances among the members 
of AA, conditions were conducive 
to an easier recovery. A member 
could relate his problems and ex- 
periences with the other mem- 
bers, since each has a common 
problem. He also gave a personal 
testimony of his experience as an

This is the fourth in a series of articles in which talented studenli 
in alt areas of study at Milligan College are asked by the editors 
to express their viewpoint on any subject they desire. 
Rill Sice, a senior pre-rned student from Indiana, who is president 
of the student body expresses his ideas on the Luxury of Integrity 

A catalytic agent is a substance which influences a 
chemical reaction but does not take part in the reaction. It 
can be found in the products of the reaction unchanged by 
the forces around it. We, as students, continually feel the 
pressures of different social groups, each trying to influence 

us to conform to their ways. In — 

opposition to this, each of us have art Chase, "The Luxury of In-

. real gone, 
. but where? 

Milligan students as well as thousands of other students on 
thousands of other campuses are concerned with exhibiting the 
collegiate image The collegiate image is involved with group ac- 
ceptance and includes such nebulous entities as wearing "cool" 
clothes, attaining a degree of academic prowess, exhibiting per- 
sonality appeal, and participating in group identifying activities. In 
short, being collegiate is being "with it" or being "real gone" by 
the standards of your campus. The collegiate image varies from 
campus to campus, giving each college a unique individuality. 

A director of counseling at a well-known midwestern university 
recently said this about the collegiate image. "Collegians will try 
anything once, if it's not loo much effort, and not a few would 
rather make a record piling people into a telephone booth or drink- 
ing large amounts than make A's, or keep virginity, or run the 

Milligan College has a college image. Milligan's image is unique 
because it attempts to fit liberal arts education into a Christian 
milieu. Milligan's collegiate image is unlike the above mentioned 
midwestern university. Yet certain campus minority groups would 
■try to distort the Milligan image to make it fit that pattern. 

Recent rebellious activities by this minority group on our 
campus indicate that we have some students more interested in 
evoking a high school, adolescent image than that of mature col- 
legians. To be specific — a quantity of paint was thrown on the side- 
walk in front of Hardin (it took two men four hours to clean up the 
mess) — a handful of knives and forks was broken and mangled and 
several sugar bowls were stolen from the cafeteria — pop bottles 
strewn and broken in the parking lot caused four flat tires— new 
street lights were reversed in wet concrete causing considerable 
needless expense — vandalism from the library seems to be a com- 
mon practice — broken windows and smashed screens in dormitories 
keep the repair crew from more constructive work — and a few 
empty dormitory rooms indicate that a few students went TOO 
far with their adventures — and this list is not definitive. 

One of these incidents taken separately is not so shattering, but 
viewed together, the picture they present is not consistent with the 
Milligan collegiate image. 

Students select Milligan College because they think it has some- 
thing to offer. Milligan College selects students because it thinks 
they have something to offer. Both selections arc made on the basis 
of high quality — and this is the foundation of the Milligan Col- 
legiate image. 

For the majority it is an honor to wear a blazer with a Milligan 
Seal . . . and this majority is tired of having unnecessary rules im- 
posed on it because of asinine antics of the minority who wish to 
distort the Milligan image. 

Many times we are not guilty 
of actually committing a breach 
of our integrity, but we condone 
the detrimental actions and words 
of others. We laugh and agree 
with a joke that was played in 
secret by "chickens" who were 
afraid to let it be known who 
they were. We do not voice the 
fact that we don't agree with 
such actions. By not speaking 
what we believe, we give our 
silent consent. Do we dare laugh 
at such actions? Are we not also 
a guilty party when we don't 
speak against these situations? 

For us to be regarded as in- 
dividuals and not just members 
of some collective, we need to 
affect and not reflect. We must 
be a strong catalyst, self-deter- 
mined, influential, or we cannot 
afford the luxury of integrity.

Among the administrative offices of Milligan College, 
there is never the chance of the business office being a 
forgotten one. Manager of the business office, Ray E. Stahl, 
has become an important figure and a known one to many 
Milligan students. Like many of the other administrators, 
Mr. Stahl began his career in

Every attempt has been made 
to have a universal spoken lan- 
guage, but as of yet, there have 
been no lasting, successful re- 
sults. Human emotions arc about 
the only understandable, univer- 
sal language. It is a question of 
what is behind emotions: thus, 
making it possible for people to 
have a mutual understanding of 
each other. 

Among all of the emotions, the 
smile is most easily translated. 
It is the first "conscious" ex- 
pression of human emotions and 
is most simply expressed by a 
child. As a child grows and ma- 
tures, his smile holds more mean- 
ing: it reveals his inner emotions 
and attitudes to the outside 

Expression has been defined as 
the "motion of emotion." A smile 
can be sarcastic, genuine, loving, 
hateful, confident, affected, or 
any of a hundred other modes 
expressing human attitudes. It is 
small but significant and is pleas- 
ant to look at as well as to feel.

What Is A 
Presidential Primary? 

As the 190-1 presidential election draws near, the STAMPEDE has 
ashed Larry Clark to write a scries of articles dealing with the 
election process. The first of these articles explains the primary — 
what it means, the different types used, and then significance. 


What is the presidential primary? It is a preliminary

Class Rings 
Fit Every Taste 

College rings are on sale, and 
any senior, junior, or sophomore 
may purchase one now. 

Men may choose a handsome 
ring in either 10K gold or 10K 
white gold. They have the choice 
of the following stones: black 
onyx, synthetic ruby, synthetic 
blue spinel, synthetic tourmaline, 
synthetic emerald green, or all 
metal. The cost for the man's ring 
is $32.00, plus S4.16 for federal 
and state tax. The block "M" or 
the cross is $4.00 extra. 

Women may choose either a 
miniature man's ring, a class pin, 
or a dinner ring. The miniature 
man's ring for the lady is the 
same as the regular man's ring 
except in size and cost. The cost 
is $28.00, plus $3.64 for federal 
and state tax, and $4.00 for the 
block "M" or cross, if desired. 
The lady's pin is the crest of the

connecting the crest with the 
numbers of the graduating class. 
The pin comes in synthetic ruby 
only and the cost is $15.50, plus 
$2.02 for federal and state tax. 
According to the Balfour Com- 
pany, the dinner ring has been 
designed and is ready to be cut.

looks like. As soon as this in- 
formation arrives, those rings will

Before registering, many stu- 
dents held special sessions with 
Mr, Stahl to settle their accounts 
for the previous semester. This 
is a process which can and should 
be avoided. 

To aid those who can not pay- 
cash. Milligan has two financial 
plans. One is through Tuition 
Plan, Inc. Students and their par- 
ents may arrange for deferred 
payments of eight, twenty, thirty. 
or forty installments for one, two, 
three, or four years respectively. 
The two-, three- and four-year 
plans carry insurance on the 
father or the head of the house- 
hold without extra cost. If he dies 
during the term of the contract, 
the student's debt is paid by the 
insurance provision. The only 
charge for the service is the in- 
terest rate. 

Beginning next year, a fifty- 
or sixty-payment plan will be 
available to the freshmen. Stu- 
dents who use this plan will 
begin their monthly installments 
in June before they enroll in 
September. The one-year plan 
will be extended from elghl to 
ten installments. 

In addition to this, the business 
office is prepared to help students 
and their parents on short term 

loans for two, three, or four 
months. These loans are discount- 
ed through a local bank. A note 
is made out to the College. Then. 
the College sells the note to the 
local bank. Payments are made 
to the bank. 

In special cases, six-, nine-, or 
twelve-month installment loans 
are arranged. These cut 
terest rate of six percent plus in- 
surance on the maker of the note. 

Due to the expanding enroll- 
ment and the variety of financial 
needs of the students, the college 
feels that it cannot carry these 
loans through its offices without 
undue expense and a largi

I wish to express my sympathy to Piggy over the untimely loss 
of his front tooth. It was indeed an unfortunate accident, because it 
eliminated him from the sophomore class beauty competition. Ac- 
cording to Piggy a 6'5", 240 pound "moose" was responsible for the 
extraction which happened during a basketball scrimmage. I sort of 
think that Piggy is exaggerating. The "moose" might weigh that 
Tnueh but he is only 5"9" tall. After, all, I should know.

Well, the craze has hit the campus and gone leaving several 
"boys holding the bond. I am still waiting for the future "Athlete of 
the Month" to start driving his Corvette but I'm not holding my 
hreath in the meantime. Those students that shied away from this 
deal were the smart ones because several dumb, stupid, ignorant, 
■morons ended upon the short end. Incidentally, would anyone be 
interested in obtaining a bond? I have one you can have.

This campus has two powerhouse teams in the City Basketball 
League. One is headed by our sports editor and the other by yours 
truly. These two teams will collide on February 20, to see who is 
the strongest in the league. The loser of that game will probably be 
holding up the rest of the teams in the standings. Between the two 
teams a total of one win and 11 losses has been recorded. I won't 
say which team has lost all its games.

I understand that Dr. Wetzel is going to have to find another 
way to make that extra spending money. Those government agents 
are cracking down and making the moon-shine business a thing of 
the past. Of course I'm just joking, because the still was found 
about a mile down the road from his house. Those walks at night 
are murder, aren't they, Doe?

As usual the freshman class has several boys that are tre- 
mendous track and field athletes. Every year there are some boys 
who talk all year of their high school accomplishments and predict 
great things to come. However, I'm like the Buff letterman in that 
I'm just going to wait and see. Incidentally, Coach Walker asked 
me to inform you that the 100-yard dash will not be run any longer 
in track this year. It will still be 100 yards.

I think that every Buffite should be proud of our wrestling 
squad. This year's team is just as good, if not better, than any we 
have had. This year's schedule has included opponents that are 
more formidable than those of the past. The tougher the competi- 
tion, the better our team will be. Congratulations, grapplers.

No doubt everyone has heard of the great athletic prowess of a 
Mr. Ralph A. Wheeler. With a little conditioning, he could be 
champion of any sporting event on the campus. If you haven't heard 
this, it is because you haven't associated with him. However, Ralph 
is afraid to challenge someone in public because he might lose face 
by being defeated. Instead, he wrestles in rooms where he has the 
advantage of furniture or in secluded spots where spectators are 
none. I am willing to act as advertising manager for anyone who 
will get Ralph to accept a challenge to hold an individual sporting 
event in the gym with the public invited. The event call be any- 
thing from wrestling to badminton, as long as Ralph has a physical 
combatant. Come on fellows, Down with Ralph!"

Rex Jackson, an example of this 
outstanding talent, has been a 
consistent point winner for the 
team in two weight classes, the 
177 and heavyweight. Rex has a 
great knowledge of the sport as 
is evidenced in his ability to han- 

dle heavier men than himself. He 
is a favorite among the Millignn 
fans. In December Rex pinned his 
man in a meet with Maryville 
and was headed for the 1st place 
win at Chattanooga Invitational, 
when an ankle injury held him 
to the second spot. 

Rex plans to obtain a teaching 
certificate in Business Adminis- 
tration, and plans to do graduntc 
work in Indiana where he wonts 
to teach. Rex hails from South- 
port High School in Indianapolis 
where he lettered in wrestling 
and football. 

Congratulations, Rex, for being 
selected Athlete of the Month! 


Sports Editor 

W..- are now going over our season's predictions. We pre- 
viously said the Buffs would win 10 and drop 11. The Buffs 
already have the 11 victories and 6 losses with three games 
to go. We think the Buffs can take at least two of these re- 
maining games. 


It was a come-from-behind victory that put Milligan on 
top of Carson-Newman in their previous meeting. The Buffs 
will be traveling to Jefferson City for the match which will 
give the Eagles a slight advantage. But any improvement at 
all in the light weights should assure Milligan the victory. 

An experienced Appalachian State toom just looks too 
good for Milligan to up-set, but do look for a closer score 
than the first one, 



February 13. 1964 


Dean Oakes stated recently that 
we will continue with an enroll- 
ment of approximately six hun- 
dred students until September, 
1966, when a new women's dor- 
mitory will be completed. This 
will increase the enrollment to 
eight hundred students. In 1967 
or 1968, the men's dormitory will 
be enlarged. An enrollment of one 
thousand students is expected by 


To improve the appearance of 

our campus, the Carter County 

Soil Conservation District care- 
fully studied the various condi- 
tions of the terrain. To complete 
the study, maps were made 
showing the landscaping of the 
campus. Suggestions were also 
made as to how we can improve 
the beauty of our campus. Mr. 
E. B. Dyer directed the study. 
The Summer School Office is 
located on the ground floor of 
Hardin Hall next to Dr. Dampier's 
office. Anyone interested 1 in at- 
tending the summer session 
should consult Dr. Fife, the new 
director, during office hours. - 

Library Shelving 
System Changed 

If you have been wandering 
around the library lately looking 
for biographies on the first floor 
and fiction in the front section 
of the second floor, you've prob- 
ably noticed that some changes 
have been made in the location 
of these books. 

The moving of these books is 
a part of an over-all "moving 
program" in the library. At pres- 
ent, all books catalogued in the 
four hundreds or lower are lo- 
cated on the first floor. Also on 
the first floor are the reference 
books and current magazines. 

The fiction and biographies are 
shelved in the back section of the 
second floor. All books numbered 
five hundred or higher are now 
on the second floor and in the 
near future the three and four 
hundred books will be moved to 
the second floor also. 

All back issues of magazines 
are now on the ground level, 
shelved alphabetically by title in 
the section directly behind the 
audio-visual room. 

On the first floor on the shelves 
immediately to the left of the 
main circulation desk, there are 
new books which have just re- 
cently been made available to the 
students. These shelves are for 
display and convenience only and 
students may check these books 
out at any time.

A true, genuine smile seems to 
flow all over the face. 

Although a smile is small, it 
is the fundamental human ex- 
pression, revealing a person's at- 
titude toward life; therefore, it is 
important that each individual 
possess a healthy, well-rounded 
feeling concerning his environ- 
ment. Because the smile is uni- 
versal, one must improve his dis- 
position and deepen his sympathy 
with his fellowmen. A false smile 
is easily recognized and disliked: 
a sincere smile is appreciated by

Active Calendar 
Maintained By 
Service Seekers 

The Service Seekers are begin- 
ning the new semester with a 
host of activities. 

The February 4 meeting was 
led by Dave Roberts, who spoke 
on the subject of "Church Call- 

On Sunday, February 9, the 
club sponsored a trip to the 
Grundy Mountain Mission. The 
Service Seekers were responsible 
for the Sunday services -and other 
activities-of the day. Because of 
the recent fire at the Home, a 
collection of usable, old clothes 
was taken to help them out. 

The next bake sale sponsored 
by the club will be held Satur- 
day, February 15, in Sutton 
Lobby. The money raised will 
contribute to the various projects 
of the club. 

Recently, the Service Seekers 
have visited two area churches 
where they have taught Sunday 
School. One church was the Wa- 
tauga Christian Church, and the 
other was the Lynnwood Chris- 
tian Church. 

Some of the recent activities of 
the club included a very interest- 
ing program on missions present- 
ed by Ann Newsom. At the ves- 
per service before final exams, 
Mrs. Helsabeck gave a very in- 
spiring message. The many who 
were present were well reward-

Commuter Travel 
Is Hazardous 
And Hilarious 

A medal should be pinned on 
every commuting student! De- 
spite the foul weather with ex- 
treme cold and deep snow, we 
faithful commuters hazarded our 
lives and our precious autos in 
order to attend our classes. How- 
ever, for some of us the ice on 
the roads was only part of our 
problem. How many of you have 
ever had a flat tire in the snow? 
It's an experience never to be 
forgotten, especially when there 
are two flats and both of them 
are snow tires. One of the car- 
loads of commuter girls met with 
just such a catastrophe. The fill-

Buffs Strengthen

Barker and Stevens threw in 13. 
Barker led all rebounders by 
hauling down 12. 

The Tusculum battle began like 
all Tusculum battles, a full house, 
rugged, and close. This lime the 
Herd walked off the floor at half 
time with a 45-37 lead. But the 
Buffs came back in the second 
half with a defense that limited 
the Pioneers to 29 points and a 
offense that threw in 41. The 
Buffs also took the rebound 
honors from the taller Greene- 
ville team by a margin of 50 
to 33. Wayne Herndon pulled 15 
down and was followed by Bark- 
er's 12 grabs. All five of the 
Buffs hit in double figures for 
the rout at a torrid 57 r U from 
the field. Dwight Ihe "Tumbler" 
fired in 27 points for his season 
high, followed by Steven's 19, 
Robinson's 17, Herndon's 12, and 
11 for Hiatt for a total 86. The 
Pioneers had three men in dou- 
ble figures but fell short from 
there on, totaling only 66 points. 

The Carson-Newman "jinks" 
hit Cheek Gymnasium Monday 
night as the Milligan Herd could 
manage only 28 field goals out of 
78 attempts from the field for a 
110 to 77 loss. The Eagles on the 
other hand threw in 41 field 
goals of their 78 attempts for a 
hot 53 %. Fifteen different Eagles 
fired in the 110 points, 59 of 
which came in the first half. The 
taller Eagles managed to get 
only six more rebounds than our 
Buffs (64-58). It was a disorgan- 
ized mess for the Buffs as they 
had turn-overs left and right and 
had to rush their shots to get 
them off over the powerful giants 
from Jefferson City.

college are $750,000. 

Among his other duties, Mr. 
Stahl writes the publicity all of 
the promotional literature for 
Milligan and takes care of all the 
printing. He also writes the MIL- 
LIGENDA and takes care of 
some student recruitment through 
both trips and letters. Besides 
this, he is in charge of the Mil- 
ligan College displays at conven- 
tions — last year he handled the 
Florida State Christian, the North 
American, the Southern Chris- 
tian, and the International Chris- 
tian Conventions. He also spon- 
sors the BUFFALO and coaches 
the golf team. Obviously his 
hobby is golf, and he is quite as 
interested in photography. He 
does many of the pictures which 
appear in the Guidance Bulletin, 

In his quest for publicity for 
the school, he feels that Milligan 
should establish "greater na- 
tional visibility for the college, 
particularly as it affects tin- 
churches." In the years 1957-61, 
Stahl was the national chair- 
man of publicity for the Council 
for Advancmeent of Small Col- 
leges. In this responsibility he 
handled radio, TV. and press 
news for the national meetings 
and national workshops. He wrote 
one story concerning married 
students in the small colleges 
which appeared in every news- 
paper in the country. 

As a citizen, Mr. Stahl is 
equally active. He docs civic work 
as a Kiwanis Club member, and 
is chairman of the club's voca- 
tional guidance program. He is 
also chairman of the elders of 
the First Christian Church in 
Johnson City and teaches the 
men's Bible school class

Petition Group 
Seeks Charter 

Several months ago, a group of 
students formulated and organ- 
ized into what is termed the Mil- 
ligan College Circle K Petition 
Group. This organization, under 
the leadership of its present 
president, Dan Simmons, has been 
and is working in the direction 
to become a chartered member 
of the Circle K International. 

Just what is Circle K Inter- 
national? Circle K is a intercol- 
legate organization and not a 
fraternity. It is a service organ- 
ization for college men operating 
on the campus and is similar to 
Kiwanis and other service clubs. 
It is a leadership and character- 
building group which serves the 
campus and the community. The 
motto of Circle K is "We Build" 
— building for justice, liberty, 
democracy, and a better world 
in which to live. This briefly is 
some of the facets of this or- 

At present there are 28 petition 
members; Dale Baldwin, Joe

The itinerary for the tour is 
as follows: 

March 25 — Louisville, Ky. 

March 26— Scottsburg, Ind. 

March 27— Evansville. Ind. 

March 28 — Indianapolis, Ind. 

March 29 — Indianapolis, Ind. 

March 30— Chicago, 111. 

April 1 — Columbus, Ohio. 

April 2 — Cincinnati, Ohio. 

The choir, consisting of thirty- 
two members, will be prssenting 
a program with a great deal of 
variety. The repertoire is divided 
into five sections. The first is a 
group of more difficult numbers 
from Bach to Handel. There are 
two sections of common religious 
anthems, one section of Negro 
spirituals and one of secular 
music. By having such a variety, 
the choir feels its program will 
be well suited for all people. The 
audience will be pleased with 
the familiar music and inspired 
by the more difficult. 

Although every member of the 
choir has been working hard in 
preparation for the tour. Mrs. De- 
lores Heiney, choir director, has 
put forth the most energy. Mrs. 
Heiney was born in Indianapolis 
and has lived there and in Bloom- 
ington. Because she lived so much 
of her life up North, she is very 
thrilled about the opportunity she 
will have to renew old friend- 
ships. Mrs. Heiney is a woman 
who loves her work. She began 
her preparation in music when 
she did her undergraduate and

private voice lessons. She has 
always been an active participant 
in church choirs and has done 
solo work since she was in col- 
lege. Mrs. Heiney's aim is to lead 
the choir from an educational 
point of view. She succeeds in do- 
ing this by giving the students 
who are majoring in music the

Council Plans 
Exchange Day 

In an effort to improve student 
government here at Milligan, the 
Student Council is planning sev- 
eral exchange programs with 
representatives from the student 
councils of nearby colleges. Coun- 
cil officers, annual and newspa- 
per editors, and presidents of 
service clubs, will be asked to 
attend. Programs are being 
planned with Emory and Henry 
and LMU colleges. 

It is hoped that our council 
can learn much about student 
government from the students 
representing these various areas 
of campus life and thus make 
itself more effective in its rep- 
resentative role. 


For the past two years the Milligan College Summer 
School has been growing both numerically and intellectuaJIy. 
And from all appearances and preparation, this summer 
school should be even more successful. Dr. Robert O. Fife has 
been appointed Director of the 1964 Summer Session. 

There will be two five-week 

sessions of summer school during value to several groups of stu- 
1964. The first session will be dents:

Milligan's Chief Educator— You 

by Nancy McCorkle, Co-Ediior 

'A student's fellows are his chief educators," stated Dr. 
James DeForest Murch, the deliverer of this year's Welshimer 

A collegian's professors are his intellectual guides and 
motivaters, the administration is his discipline and keeper, 
but his fellow students are his teachers. His actions, activities, 
and aspirations are molded by the will of his associates. This 
truth is measurement for and judgment of the Milligan stu- 
dent body. 

For who are your teachers? What is the lesson you are 
learning from them? Since becoming a member of the Mil- 
ligan community, have you grown stronger or weaker phy- 
sically, mentally, socially, and spiritually from your asso- 

Now, measure yourself, for you are someone's chief 
teacher. What is your part in that "someone's" education? 
What is your contribution to your Milligan student body? 
Are you building or are you wrecking? The Milligan that 
should be, will be, if each student is the teacher and learner 
that he can be.

Dear Editors: 

After hearing the Welshimer Lectures this year, I was im- 
pressed with the statements of Dr. Murch on education, but one 
thing struck me as being of particular application to Milligan. He 
staled the need for adequate facilities to attract top talent into a 
Christian atmosphere. 

There has been much talk of building a new women's dormitory 
and a new chapel, but yet. Milligan is the only accredited college I 
know of that still meets in one building. One look at our Administra- 
tion Building by a potential student in the areas of science, math, 
or even the humanities is enough to drive him into the inhuman 
arms of the state institutions. 

The education of superior students includes the education of the 
future leaders of our churches which is an important part of the 
great Milligan tradition . . . BUT Milligan cannot educate students 
properly with inadequate facilities.

many respects is inbred and more

Many laugh at honor. Those 
who laugh will be laughed at in 
the end. Honorable men may be 
judged as fools, but those who 
judge are the fools. So what is 
worse than pretending honor? 
N oth ng is worse, because you

1964 CLASS 



The Milligan student body, de- 
voted admirers of Cupid, cele- 
brated Valentine's Day with a 
"Heart of My Heart" party. 

The highlight of the evening 
was the introduction of the 1964 
class beauties. Each class presi- 
dent presented an engraved 
charm to the girl his class had 
elected "heart of it's heart." 

Miss Freshman is Nancy War- 
field. Hailing from River Rouge, 
Michigan, Nancy, a social studies 
major, enjoys music and art. 

Janice Honeycutt, Miss Sopho- 
more, is from Unicoi. Tennessee. 
English and Latin are her ma- 


jors: sewing and hairdressing are 
her pastimes.

Dowd Concert 

Monday night March 16 
brought a pleasant surprise to 
many students of Milligan Col- 
lege, when two members of the 
faculty displayed an exception- 
al talent in a double-piano con- 
cert. Mr. and Mrs. John Dowd 
presented an interesting varied 
program with Mother Goose ca- 
vorting with Brahms and Mozart. 

The first selection. "Adagio 
and Fugue" by Mozart, contained 
a short melody that reoccurred 
frequently much like a round, 
but in modified forms. The au- 
dience was transported to a fairy- 
land by the enchanting music of 
Ravel's "Ma Mere L'Oye" Moth- 
er Goose). A mournful lament 
for Sleeping Beauty was followed 
by the bouncy little Tom Thumb.

It is of utmost importance that discerning adults, especi-

The very odd thing about Bald-

by The National Council of

bring to an anticipated fifteen 
hundred participants some of the 
best current thought about 
rhetoric, language, and literature, 
to encourage a continuing explor-

thought to our understanding and 
teaching of composition, and to 
explore its broader implications 
for our freshman English and the

The Johnson City chapter of the Fellowship Of Christian 
Athletes held its first annual rally February 22, at Science 
Hill High School. Attending were about three thousand high, 
school and college athletes from this area, including sixteen 
athletes and coaches from Milligan. 
The rally featured three out— 


The Buffaloes brought the 63-64 season to a close on 
a sour note by dropping 3 out of 4 of their last games- The 
lone victory came in an outing against Emory and Henry's 
Wasps by an 89-77 score. The losses were administered by 
Lincoln Memorial 95-77, Tusculum 79-71, and Bethel 66-52 in 
the VSAC Tournament, The 
Buffs authored a comernmorable 
12-9 record, the best showing for 
Milligan teams in recent years. 

The Buffs traveled to Harro- 
gate, Tenn. for the return match 
with Lincoln Memorial. The Rail- 
splitters were determined to 
avenge the earlier set back the 
Buffs had inflicted upon them. 
LMU's Ron Martin led all scorers 
with 29 points followed by Rusty 
Steven's 25 for the Buffs.

An outstanding job in the 
Southeastern Intercolleg iate 
Championship by Arnold Dort. 
plus an undefeated season makes 
Arnold an easy choice to win 
this month's honorary award. 

Arnold gained fourth place in 
the S.I.C. by winning 2 out of 4 
matches. He defeated a Georgia 
Tech grappler by a pin and out- 
pointed a Florida State wrestler. 
His losses were by one point to 
a University of Georgia man and 
by one point to the winner from 
the University of the South. 
Arney was wrestling at a big 
disadvantage in the 191 pound 
class since he weighed only 169 
pounds. Rex Jackson entered the 
177 pound class; the tourney per- 
mitted only one entry from each 
school in each weight class. 

Arnold chuckles when he re- 
members his first round opponent 
from the University of Georgia. 
Arney thought he was wrestling 
a TV professional, whose show- 
manship included a head butting 
contest against Arnold, who 
faked brain concussion! He ap- 
parently continued these antics 
through the matches. 

During t h e regular season 
Arnold was undefeated in five 
matches, which were all by pins 
but one. 

Lucie Morrison now bears the 
title of Mrs. Arnold Dort since 
June 15 of last year. His wife is 
a graduate of Ohio Weslcyan and 
now is teaching the second grade 
at Madison Elementary School in 
Kingsport. Arnold is a physical 
education major, He nnd his wife 
hope to become members of the 
U.S. Peace Corps team after his 
graduation this June. Congratula- 
tions. Arnold, for rcprcsentinR our 
school so successfully.

The final tallies in the fall and winter sports are in, and in 
relation to our predictions this is how we faxed. In cross-country 
we were 100 c /c correct. Every meet was right on the nose. Wrestling 
found our first mistakes; we predicted the matmen over Maryville in 
their first outins, but this was not to be. We also expected a return 
victory over Carson-Newman, but the Eagles turned the tables (mats) 
and outpointed our grapplers. 

Our original pre-season prediction of 10 wins and 11 losses for 
the cagers was off when the Buffs came up with 12 wins and 9 
losses. We are glad in that respect though. In our last edition we 
said the Buffs were going to take two of their three remaining reg- 
ular season games, but they managed only one victory in that 

This is how it looks statistically:

Beginning with the spring sports we will have to rely on the 
crystal ball. In baseball there are eight regular fielders and one im- 
portant individual, that being the pitcher, who is considered 90 r r> 
of a baseball game, The '64 squad is strong in hitting and fielding 
and are ably backed by a strong bench, possibly the best in the 
conference. The pitching staff, however, is plagued with injuries and 
illness which makes the situation complicated. The Buffs are also 
embarking upon a rugged schedule with some top "scholarship giv- 
ing" schools. With all factors in mind, the Buffs are going to find 
the road rough, but we like a Stout-directed team and believe they 
will come out on the long end of (he stick. The Buffs should win 
16 and drop only 10. 

The track team supports an experienced team and yet on un- 
balanced one. The cindermen lack sprinters but are strong in the 
distance runs, they arc relatively strong in some field events, like 
the shot, discus, and high jump, but much is to be desired in the 
brood-jump, pole vault and javelin throw The point burden will 
have to fall upon oil equally for the Buffs to gain an outstanding 
season record. The Buffs should rack-up enough points to give them 
six victories and only four setbacks. The first meet for the thin- 
clads will be a tight one due to the early date. But our Buffs will 
out-point Wofford.

half found the undoings of the 
Buffs as Bethel poured in 42 
points to Milligan's 27. Ken Rob-

the Buffs with 14 followed by 
Wayne Herndon's 12.

Stevens bucketed 446 points for 
a 22.3 average, while Robinson 
ranked second with a 15.6 mark. 
Two other Buff starters finished 
in double figures. Darrell Hiatt 
compiled an 11.1 percentage and 
Barker finished with a 10.6 mark. 

Rusty also led Milligan's scor-

As a team, Milligan scored 
1,599 points for an average of

yielded 1,622 tallies for a 77.2

The national pass time has hit the country, and Milligan 
College is not excluded. The Buffalo Diamondmen have been 
taking every advantage possible to "shape up" for the 64

This afternoon Milligan thinclads open the 1964 track and 
field season by journeying to Spartanburg, South Carolina 
where they will be entertained by the Wofford Bulldogs. 
This is the earliest date that the track and field season has 
opened on in recent years, and the Buffs have been striving 

tenaciously to attain some de- — 

gree of "inshapeness". Recent and will be counted on to score
